On April 22, 2020, and until August 31, 2020, a new temporary rule has been implemented by the Government of Canada. This new rule allows international students to work more than 20 hrs/week. Up to April 22nd, International students could only work up to 20 hours per week. This new measure is to help current workers pressured by the intense work of the pandemic. Of particular interest are students in health care, critical infrastructure, the supply food chain, or other essential goods.
Many health care students are just about to finish their training and their support could be significant to all. Replenishing food supplies is also essential during these times of crisis.
