The Immigration Minister extended temporary policies to support more international students

Marc Miller, the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), announced the extension of three temporary policies set to expire in 2023. IRCC extended the waiver, allowing students to work off-campus for more than 20 hours weekly until April 30, 2024. This applies to students already in Canada and those who apply for a study permit by December 7, 2023. Furthermore, the measure allowing online study time to count towards a post-graduation work permit will continue for students starting before September 1, 2024. In addition, the Canadian Government extended the temporary policy granting an extra 18-month work permit for post-graduation work permit holders with expiring work permits. Post-graduation work permit holders whose initial permit expires by December 31, 2023, can apply to extend their work permit.
