More details....

To work off campus, you have to apply for a work permit. Do not begin to work off campus until you have received your work permit. The work permit authorizes you to work up to 20 hours per week during regular academic sessions, and full time during scheduled breaks (e.g., winter or summer holidays and spring break).

To be eligible for an off-campus work permit, you will have to:
* have a valid study permit;
* be studying at a participating institution (see list above);
* have been a full-time student for at least six of the twelve months preceding your application for a work permit;
* be in satisfactory academic standing;
* sign a form authorizing the institution, the province and CIC to share your personal information (in order to confirm that you are continuing to study full time and that you are in satisfactory academic standing);
* complete a work permit application (available on the CIC Web site); and
* include with your work permit application an official receipt to show you have paid the application processing fee of $150.

You are not eligible to apply for an off-campus work permit if you are:
* participating in a Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT);
* participating in a Government of Canada Awards Program funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT);
* receiving funding from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA); or
* attending a participating institution and registered in an English-as-a-second-language or French-as-a-second-language program.

Oh no problem, I just got so happy that I had to share it with you guys.

Although I have to find out whether the 20 hours/per week limit is including the work on campus or excluding that; because many students (atleast graduate students) get to work in teaching/research assistantships on campus which have a commitment of atleast 10 hours per week, so if one can only work the resedual hours off campus then it wouldn't make a big difference as such.

Anyway, I am gonna attend an info seminar at my Uni on 6th May, so I will keep you guys posted of what I learn.

Cheers
Party on
