Working in Canada

International Students in Canada may work on or off campus without a work permit if they meet the eligibility requirements of Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

Anyone who works in Canada must have a Social Insurance Number (SIN) in order to legally be permitted to work and to have access to government programs and benefits. For more information on SIN cards, visit Service Canada. For more information on the code of practice, visit SIN Holders’ Responsibilities.
