Question Description
I am Indian student willing to study in Canada? To support my education and living cost, I have to work part time. I am searching whether international students can work in Canada or Not? If yes, how long per week can international student work? How types of jobs/works are available for international student in Canada? What is the average payout per hour in Canada for international student? Can anybody answer me please?
Answer

You surely can work in Canada as an international student. But there are certain criterias. You don't need to obtain any work permit to do on-campus jobs (jobs offered by univeristy/college itself). But if you plan to do off-campus jobs, you'll need to obtain work permit. If you work off-campus without permission, you might be banished from Canada.

It seems, you can only support your education in Canada if you work there. But remember, you're not allowed to enter Canada until you are able to show proof that you have sufficient fund to support your education and living in Canada. If you don't have enough funds, you life in Canada may be risky. Please re-think your plans and apply to study in Canada only if you are can genuinely proof yourself as a deserving candidate to go and study in Canada.
