Canada High Commission in India informed the students who are going to Canada this winter that a border services officer will review their documents, hence, it suggested students to be prepared to show that their designated learning institution (DLI) has allowed them to arrive.
According to Canada Immigration rules, one can work during his studies on the basis of conditions on their study permit. Students can work off campus without a work permit, they just need to meet all of these requirements:
1) You’re a full-time student at a designated learning institution (DLI)
2) You’re enrolled in: a post-secondary academic, vocational or professional training program, or a secondary-level vocational training program (Quebec only)
3) Your study program: is at least 6 months long, and leads to a degree, diploma or certificate
4) You’ve started studying, and you have a Social Insurance Number (SIN)
A SIN is a 9 digit number that the Government of Canada gives you. You need one to work in Canada.
If your study permit doesn’t have work conditions on it, you can ask to have these conditions added if you’re eligible to work off campus. There’s no fee to add these conditions to your permit. You’ll need to request an amendment to your study permit before you can apply for a SIN from Service Canada.
