Under the new rules, fewer points will be awarded for qualified job offers and international graduates will receive additional points in recognition of their having completed post-secondary studies in Canada.

These changes will apply to the country’s Express Entry programme, which uses a standardized scoring system to determine which applicants will receive an invitation to apply for permanent residency. Candidates can receive a maximum of 1,200 points and the highest-ranking applicants are selected.

Therefore Canada makes the best destination for international students after Germany, where tuition fees are free.

I am an international student in Canada. Can I work while studying?

Yes. You may be eligible to work in Canada while studying and after you graduate. As a study permit holder, you may qualify to work on-campus or off-campus without an additional work permit if you meet specific criteria.

If your academic, professional or vocational training program includes an essential co-op or internship component, you will need to apply for a work permit.

You may also apply for a post-graduation work permit to continue working in Canada after you graduate from an eligible institution.

For more details, see Work Permits for Students.
