Canada Warns Indian Students Not to Start Working until The Course Begins!

The Canadian government has reportedly requested that incoming Indian university students make sure they are properly documented. Students are cautioned by the Canadian High Commission in India not to begin working in the country before the commencement date of their selected course of study. The Canadian High Commission in India tweeted.

“While some study visas do allow you to work in Canada, you may not begin doing so until your study program has begun.” The Commission has also requested new students to make sure they have documentation showing their chosen college or university (designated learning institution) has granted them a deferral or late arrival.

A member of Canada’s border services team will look over your paperwork if you plan on visiting the country in the fall or winter. It warned those who could be late to produce proof that they had been granted a deferral or a waiver from their DLI.

In order to legally work in Canada, foreign students must be enrolled full-time in an approved post-secondary academic, vocational, or professional training program at a designated learning institution (DLI) or an approved DLI.

As long as they follow the guidelines outlined in their study visa, secondary school students in Quebec who are enrolled in a vocational training program are permitted to work off campus. The selected program should be at least six months in length and should result in a formal credential such as a certificate or degree.

Foreign students must also have a valid Social Insurance Number (SIN) in order to legally work in the country while they are enrolled in postsecondary education. It is important for Indian students in Canada to know that they cannot do any off-campus jobs while they are on an approved study leave, or while they are transferring schools but not actively enrolled in a program.
