Default Work for children (teens) when on TWP?

I have a friend who recently arrived in Toronto with wife and kids, one if which is a 16 year old. Husband has a TWP and wife has a spousal open work permit. The gids are in school/high school. The teen is unhappy with her allowance having realized that kids in Toronto seem to have/need a lot of money in hand (for shopping, Tim Hortons, whatever) - so she would like to get a small job to make a little money. However, she only has a study permit, not a work permit. And she IS primarily here to go to school (and stay with her family), if course.

Does anyone in here know if it is possible to get a work permit in that situation that would allow her to earn a bit of money herself? Or is that impossible?

No, she cannot work nor can she get a work permit as she is under 18. https://britishexpats.com/wiki/Teenagers-Canada and http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcen...r.asp?qnum=201

Thank you. That sucks!

I had a feeling that would be the answer, but I was hoping someone in here could prove me wrong. Unfortunately not

How about babysitting? That’s usually an option for a 16 year old - easy these days to advertise on local Facebook groups.

As above, she isn't legally allowed to work at all until she gets PR (or a work permit in her own right).

Unfortunately not, she is a visitor and not allowed to work at anything in Canada without a work permit or PR status. I wouldn't be encouraging anyone to break the law particularly if they hope to apply for PR at some stage - if a dependent is deemed inadmissable (for working without a work permit, for instance) so would the parents be.
