WHAT IS CONSIDERED "WORK"?

Work” is defined in the Immigration Canada Regulations as an activity for which wages are paid or commission is earned, OR that competes directly with activities of Canadian citizens or permanent residents in the Canadian labour market.

NOTE: "work" includes "unpaid employment undertaken for the purpose of obtaining work experience, such as an internship or practicum normally done by a student." (see Immigration Canada website)


As a full-time International McGill student, you can work both on campus and off campus, but it's important to ensure that you have the right documents to do so legally.
