Default working off campus when on study permit

My son started High School, on a study permit, at the end of August this year. At first he did not plan on finding part-time work, but he has now been offered a job.

His study permit states that he can not work.

Who do I have to contact, and how long would it take to get him some sort of a work permit to work weekends?

When we were looking at studying, the university had all the details on their international students pages, and you could apply for an 'off-campus work permit' after 3 months I think. I have no idea if high school students are extended this privilege or not, although I suspect they may not be... hopefully someone will be along who has some experience ...

High school students are not eligible for off/on campus work permits.
from www.cic.gc.ca

"The Off-Campus Work Permit Program allows certain foreign students to work off campus while completing their studies. To qualify, you must be a full-time student enrolled at a participating publicly funded post-secondary educational institution or in an approved program at an eligible privately funded institution.

I know how you feel. My son had the same experience when we lived in the USA, and his dad was working on a visa that didn't permit family members to work.

When we moved on from Houston to Melbourne, Australia allowed dependents of temporary work permit holders to work. From our kids' point of view, it definitely made a difference for the better.

All I can say is that I hope you'll get your PR visas soon.
