On June 9, 2021, the Government of Canada introduced clarifications to the instructions regarding students who possess a part-time course load in their final academic term. Full-time students with a part-time course load are allowed to work full-time during the regularly scheduled break before their last semester and are allowed to work off-campus up to 20 hours per week during their final academic session, provided they have maintained full-time status for the duration of their program of study.
