Can I Apply For An Off- Campus Work Permit?

I am studying at a private college here in Toronto, and I am going to graduate in 2016.  My question is whether I can apply for an off-campus work permit?

Study permit holders in Canada may gain work experience by working off campus while completing their studies.


As of June 1, 2014, you may qualify to work off campus without a work permit. If you qualify, your study permit will allow you to:


  • Work up to 20 hours per week during regular academic sessions and
  • Work full-time during scheduled breaks, such as the winter and summer holidays or spring break.
