Removing Barriers for International Student Workers

To help battle the COVID-19 outbreak, starting immediately, the Canadian Federal Government will temporarily remove restrictions through to August 31, 2020 and allow international students to full-time while classes are in session, provided they are working in an essential service or function, such as health care, critical infrastructure, or the supply of food or other critical goods.

Previously, international students were only able to work 20 hours a week during school and full time on breaks.
