Temporary Changes for International Students

Temporary changes for International Students

Canada government has removed restrictions of maximum 20 hour work per week while classes are in session, considering the international student  are working in an essential service or function, such as health care, critical infrastructure, or the supply of food or other critical goods.

However, it is a temporary change and Government recognizes that international students who are already in Canada can help to meet the needs to face this pandemic and help to battle Covid-19.


Quick Facts to consider before taking any action:-


  • International students and their employers should consult Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada’s Guidance on Essential Services and Functions in Canada During the COVID-19 Outbreak to determine if the work the student is doing would allow them to work more than 20 hours per week during the academic session.
  • This temporary rule change will be in place until August 31, 2020.
  • Statistics Canada reported that in 2017–2018, more than 11,000 international students were enrolled in health-care programs at Canada’s universities and colleges, representing about 4% of health-care students at that time.
