Work on-campus and off-campus

You may work on-campus if you:

  • Are a full-time post-secondary student at a public post-secondary school or a Canadian private school that can legally award degrees under provincial law
  • Have a valid study permit


  • Have a Social Insurance Number (SIN)

Note: you must stop working on campus when you are no longer studying full-time or when your study permit expires.

Work off-campus

You may work off-campus if you:

  • Have a valid study permit
  • Are a full-time student at a designated learning institution (DLI)
  • Have started studying
  • Are in a program that leads to a degree, diploma or certificate and it is at least 6 months long


  • Have a Social Insurance Number (SIN)

Conditions to work off-campus

  • You can work up to 20 hours per week during regular school sessions (during your program dates indicated on your Letter of Acceptance from MITT)
  • You can work full-time during scheduled breaks, and after you finish your studies if you have applied for a post-graduation work permit while you have a valid study permit
