Education offers a route to Canadian permanent resident status.
There are a range of programs whereby international students may apply for permanent immigration. In some cases, this can be done without obtaining a job offer from a Canadian employer.
In addition, international students in Canada may:
- work for up to 20 hours per week while in school, and on a full-time basis during school breaks;
- obtain a Post-Graduation Work Permit for the equivalent duration of the studies once the program is successfully completed, allowing students to remain in Canada for many years before becoming a permanent resident;
- bring an accompanying spouse or common-law partner to Canada on an open full-time work permit, allowing him or her to work for any employer;
- bring accompanying minor children to study in Canada at the same rate that Canadians pay; and
- become eligible for Canadian permanent residence, either through a Provincial Nominee Program, through Quebec’s immigration system, or through the Express Entry immigration selection system.
