The Canadian High Commission in India has told students traveling to Canada in the coming winter season that a Border Services officer will review their documents.
The guideline also cautioned students to note that students can only begin working in Canada once their study program has begun.
The High Commission of Canada said in a tweet that “TTN Students: If you are visiting Canada this Fall/Winter, a Border Services officer will review your documents. Be prepared to show that your Designated Learning Institution (DLI) has allowed you to be late or have got a deferral.”
The important thing to note is whether the students will be allowed to work in Canada before the study program starts? Absolutely not! Some study permits allow you to work in Canada, you can only start working when your study program has started, not before.
According to Canada Immigration Rules, any student can work during their studies depending on the conditions of their study permit. But if a student wants to work off campus without a work permit then he can but he has to fulfill certain requirements. These are the requirements-
- You must be a full time student in a Designated Learning Institution (DLI).
- You are enrolled in: a post secondary academic, vocational or professional training program or a secondary level vocational training program (Quebec Province only)
- Your study program must be at least 6 months long and that leads to a degree, diploma or certificate.
- You have started your studies so you must have a Social Insurance Number (SIN).
SIN is a 9 digit number that the Government of Canada gives you. You need this to work in Canada.
If you are eligible to work off campus but your study permit does not have work conditions, you can ask for these conditions to be added. There is no charge to add these conditions to your permit. You will need to request an amendment to your study permit and then apply for a SIN from Service Canada.
