Canada is one of the most attractive destinations for international students, for reasons including the fact that the country has two official languages, English and French, and the fact that it offers many immigration opportunities for those choosing to acquire or improve a profession in Canada.

Language courses at Canadian schools are excellent and worldwide recognized, but it is important to know that as of June 1, 2014, international language students are not entitled to a work permit.

Only higher, technical or vocational courses at universities and public or private colleges, which have a minimum duration of 6 months, offer the international student eligibility to apply for a work permit with a limit of up to 20 hours per week, during the period of studies and, some of them offer the COOP modality, which is the internship part, during which the student can work for more hours.

The PGWP, which is an open work permit after graduation, is a benefit available only to international students who graduate from universities or public colleges. Students at private colleges are not eligible to apply for the PGWP unless this private college is in the province of Quebec.

The PGWP is important for the student to acquire Canadian work experience valid for immigration.

WORK HOLIDAY VISA

If you have citizenship and a passport from any of the 34 countries listed below, you may be eligible to come and work in Canada for up to 2 years.

The INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE CANADA program is a program of the Government of Canada, which opens the doors for young foreigners to work here for up to 2 years, depending on their ages and countries of citizenship, which has 3 categories: Working Holiday Visa, Young Professionals and International Coop Internship.

The most popular is the Working Holiday Visa because it is the only one that gives an open work permit to those who are approved, which means that the approved person will not be connected to only one profession or company.

You are not required to study languages, but in order to get registered employment in Canada, you will need to know the language and for this reason, we, together with partner schools across the country, have prepared special promotions for you to seize this opportunity.

As Studo Education is not an immigration consultancy, all the steps related to your application with the immigration department will be done by our partner, Bárbara Vaz who is a regulated immigration consultant and expert in this program!
