Study Permit in Canada: Do and Don't
(2023 Updates)

Are you an international student in Canada with a study permit? If so, you may be wondering what the rules are for study permit holders in the country and how they have changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at the rules for study permit holders in Canada and how they may have changed in 2023.

Study Permit in Canada: Do and Don't (2023 Updates)

First and foremost, it’s important to note that study permit holders are expected to comply with the conditions of their study permit at all times. This includes maintaining full-time student status, attending classes regularly, and respecting the laws of Canada. Failure to do so can result in the loss of your study permit and the possibility of deportation.

One of the major changes to the rules for study permit holders in Canada in 2023 is the temporary increase in the number of hours that international students are allowed to work. Due to the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian government has temporarily increased the number of hours that international students are allowed to work from 20 hours per week to 40 hours per week. This change is in effect until August 31, 2023, and is intended to provide international students with more opportunities to earn money and gain valuable work experience.

In addition to the temporary increase in the number of hours that international students are allowed to work, there are also a number of other rules that study permit holders should be aware of. These include:

  • Maintaining full-time student status: To maintain your study permit, you must be enrolled in a full-time program of study and make satisfactory progress towards completing your program.
  • Reporting changes in your circumstances: If you experience any changes in your circumstances, such as a change in your address or the completion of your program, you must report these changes to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
  • Respecting the laws of Canada: As a study permit holder, you are expected to respect the laws of Canada and to refrain from engaging in any illegal activities. This includes following all public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Overall, it’s important for study permit holders in Canada to be aware of the rules and conditions of their study permit and to comply with them at all times. If you have any questions about the rules for study permit holders in Canada, don’t hesitate to contact us or Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada for more information.
