Due to changes recently made to the International Student Program, full time international students enrolled at Harbourside IT will no longer require a work permit in order to work off-campus.

Students will be permitted to work up to 20 hours per week during the regular academic year, and work full-time during regularly scheduled breaks from school. In addition, full-time students with study permits will no longer be required to wait six months before working.

Details regarding off-campus work for international students can be found on the CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) website as well as a helpful step-by-step guide, on applying, to Study in Canada.
