Can an international student under Study permit that allows to work off-campus, is allowed to work remotely full-time (40 hrs/week) for a company outside Canada? Can we work as consultants/service provider (not payroll)? Based on my research this seems possible:
Thanks in advance!

Yes you can as long as your employer doesn’t have Canadian offices or clients.

What if a company has clients and offices throughout the world. I take the view that It is about which location an employee is joined to. Let's suppose I work as a software engineer in an MNC. But I work for an Indian branch. Such cases should not be a problem.

Thank you for this valuable information. I was trying to clearing my this same doubt by doing some google. What does this mean "1/2 Working"? I didn't get this could you please tell me?

The "1/2" means it's one of two tweets on the same topic. It has nothing to do with working or the rules.

It would be a problem. That's why knowing the company "doesn’t have Canadian offices or clients. " is important.
