Working more than 20 hours in Spring as a Student in Canada

Discussion in 'Temporary Residence in Canada (Work, Study, Visit)' started by Priyavart Rajain, Jun 7, 2019.

  1. Hey guys! So it's been about 8 months that I am in Canada as a student, it's a 4-year bachelor of science program at UofC. This is my scenario:
    1. It's Spring right now and I am taking one course worth 3 credits.
    2. According to my university, I am a part-time student and can work 40 hours.
    3. My friends are saying that even if I am taking one course, I am not allowed to work 20+ hours.
    4. Is it true?
    5. If I am taking one course over spring, Can I work more than 20 hours or not?
    Any honest advice will be highly appreciated.
  2. Is it your last semester? If not, no, you cannot work more than 20 hours :

  3. Nah bruh, I just finished my 1st year .
    Thanks for the help , I will definitely follow through :)
  4. Are you required to be taking courses right now or are you on a regularly scheduled break for summer and just decided to take an extra course?
  5. Nope, I am not required to take courses in the spring, it is in fact a scheduled brake , I am just taking this course because I wanted to.
  6. The fact that you chose to take a course doesn't change the fact that it is a scheduled break and you are therefore allowed to work full-time. Note that there is no limit to full-time, so you can work as many hours as you want.
  7. Alright! That made it clear, Thank you!
