What does it take to work legally in Canada? – International Students: Working in Quebec Canada during your studies
To work legally in Canada you must have:
- that is Canadian citizenship;
- the status of permanent resident;
- either a work permit (PT), or a PT exemption provided by the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations and to respect the conditions;
- in all cases, you also need a Social Insurance Number (SIN)
Working in Canada also involves paying taxes to the provincial government and the Government of Canada.
You must therefore inquire about the work authorizations, NAS, and on taxes.
Types of work authorizations are available to international students
On-campus and off-campus employment (PT waiver)
International students are allowed to work on campus and off the campus of the University of Montreal, even if the job is not related to their studies, without having to apply for a work permit (PT). This is what is meant by a "PT waiver". However, you must ensure that you meet the criteria for working on campus.
Mandatory internship – work permit for cooperative internship
The internship work permit is also known as a coop work permit or PT-C32. As an indication, the C32 refers to a code used by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to indicate that this permit is exempt from obtaining a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) prior to its issue.
The PT-C32 is a document that entitles the holder to work in Canada in a job that is recognized as compulsory internship.
Under certain conditions, your spouse or common-law partner may be eligible for a open work permit
