On November 22, 2022, the Canadian Government released the instructions for the temporary public policy that lifts the work limitation of study permit holders. International students that were allowed to work without a work permit for no more than 20 hours during regular academic sessions can do so under this public policy. The policy came into effect on November 15, 2022, and will expire on December 31, 2023. Canada introduced this policy to allow international students to gain valuable work experience in Canada and solve the labour shortage problem in Canada.
