The new rules will come into force on June 1, 2014. The rules will:
- Limit the issuance of study permits to applicants who will be studying at a designated learning institution
- Require students to actively pursue their studies while in Canada and to inform CIC through my CIC if transferring to a new institution.
- Allow full-time international students enrolled at designated institutions in certain programs to work part time off campus and full time during scheduled school breaks without a work permit.
