INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS CAN START THEIR CO-OP WORK EARLIER AS THEY AWAIT THEIR PERMIT
International students who are on a co-op work term don’t have to wait for their permit to begin their job placements, according to a new policy released earlier this week by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Students can start working while their applications for their co-op work permit are being processed. This is a special permit that allows international students to complete all work components related to their academic degree, including co-op terms, internships, and practicum. It is a separate permit that students have to apply for, in addition to their study permit, with which students are authorized to complete non-academic-related work.
