Study Permit

For studies lasting longer than 6 months, you must apply for a Study Permit. While taking your program, you can work off campus up to 20 hours per week. You may work up to 40 hours per week during scheduled academic breaks without a Work Permit as long as you meet all these requirements:

  • You are a full-time student at a designated learning institution (DLI)
  • You are enrolled in an academic, vocational or professional training program or your study program is at least 6 months long and leads to a degree, diploma or certificate
  • You have already started studying
  • You have a Social Insurance Number (SIN)

Be sure to include CCTB's DLI number when applying for your study permit: O134304821852

If you have registered for a program that includes a work experience component (practicum/co-op), we suggest applying for a Student Work Permit at the time of filling out your Study Permit application.
