International Students

Study permits to Canada have become one of the most important ways that immigrants are able to enter and remain in Canada. With a valid study permit foreign students in Canada may (under some circumstances):

  • Attend college or university in Canada

  • Work in Canada (with valid authorization)

  • Be accompanied by their families

  • Send their children to school in Canada

The completion of a diploma or university degree in Canada may allow a foreign student to:

  • Work in Canada on an open work permit

  • Obtain permanent residence to Canada

Mark & Company can assist clients with:

  • Understanding how the study process works

  • How to take advantage of the opportunities available with respect to work permits and permanent residence

  • Finding an appropriate college or university

  • Preparing applications for study permits, work permits and permanent residence

  • Providing any other advice necessary for studying in Canada

Although students with study permits may work off campus for up to 20 hours per week (without a work permit), these regulations can be confusing and can lead to students working without proper authorization. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding this issue.

Foreign Workers

There are many ways to come to Canada as a foreign worker from Labour Market Impact Assessments to International Free Trade Agreements. Canada Immigration also issues work permits to spouses of International students and foreign workers. Once in Canada many foreign workers also qualify for immigration to Canada. We have assisted many foreign workers in:

  • Assessing their options

  • Preparing Labour Market Impact Assessments and work permit applications

  • Assisting the spouses of foreign workers in obtaining open work permits

  • Assisting foreign workers to apply for permanent residence to Canada
