Government of Canada makes it easier for international students to apply to work off-campus

Ottawa, September 3, 2008 — The Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, today announced an on-line application system that will make it easier for foreign students to apply for off-campus work permits.

International students can now complete, sign, pay for and submit their application online, anywhere and anytime in Canada. The system will only accept completed applications, thereby minimizing approval delays that result when incomplete forms need to be returned.[Source]
