Work and study in Canada.

Why Canada?

Canada prides itself as one of the best places to pursue academic learning and gain work experience. Students choose Canada for three main reasons: the quality of the education system, Canada’s reputation as a non-discriminatory and tolerant society, and its reputation as a safe country. In 2017 alone, there were 494,525 international students in Canada, Filipinos included.

Benefits of studying in Canada

Students who plan to work and study in Canada to supplement their allowance are allowed to work 20 hours per week (during regular school days) and full time during scheduled breaks, through the off-campus work permit program. Or students may choose a co-op (cooperative education)/internship work permit program, for those who opt to take a course geared towards their intended employment, and thus may be allowed to work for up to 50% of the portion of their program of study. Co-op courses combine academic with applied and practical learning.

Students may also avail of the Canadian work program after they have obtained a diploma from a post-secondary school there. They may also apply for permanent residency after, or otherwise apply their skills in their own countries.
