As of April 7, 2009, international students holding study permits in Canada have been able to extend these study permits by applying online. The e-Services system is an efficient way for international students who hold a study permit in Canada to apply off-campus work permits, extend their permits, and more. Utilizing the e-Services system, international students at over 200 participating educational institutions can submit applications for off-campus work permits and confirm their eligibility online.
To secure a student permit in Canada, applicants may submit an application at a visa post abroad, in their country of nationality, or contact our law firm at email@example.com or 1-800-993-9971. Once in Canada, international students may work on-campus or secure off-campus work permits that will allow them to gain employment experience and an income while completing their studies in Canada.
Persons who hold study permits for Canada and have a spouse may bring their spouse into Canada by applying for a visitor visa or a spousal work permit. International students may also qualify for a Post-Graduate Work Permit and secured skilled work experience after graduation in Canada. Thereafter, these individuals may qualify for Permanent Residence in Canada under the Canadian Experience Class or the Ministerial Guidelines for Federal Skilled Workers. For further information in this respect please contact our Canadian immigration lawyers at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-993-9971.
