Appendix A
International Student Internship Work Permit
  • Work permits for international students can be
    tricky.  The following offers clarification of
    the steps and attempts to simplify what can
    sometimes be a long and complicated process.
  • All international students are required to obtain
    a work permit.  International students at Tyndale
    are not permitted to work in Canada, with the
    exception of on-campus work.  The Canadian
    Government does allow work permits for internship
    placements because internships are connected to a
    students program of study.  They do not apply
    for a general work permit, but rather a
    co-op/internship permit (http//www.cic.gc.ca/engl
    ish/study/work-coop.asp).  The processing time
    for this permit can vary. Typically, students
    should expect the permit to arrive 6-8 weeks from
    date of submission.

  • The internship registration process for
    international students is as follows
  • They apply for their internship via the normal
  • Once they have secured their internship (i.e.
    submit application, complete an interview and are
    accepted), they complete a non-classroom
    registration form and submit it to the
    Registrars Office. (the form is online at
  • When they submit the form to the Registrars
    Office, they must complete a letter request form
    (also available at http//www.tyndale.ca/registrar
    /forms) and request a Work Permit Letter. The
    reason that the registrars office needs to see
    the signed non-classroom form is because they
    must verify that a student is completing the
    internship and its duration. Students are to
    submit both forms at the same time.
  • Registrars office completes the Work Permit
    Request letter and the students apply for the
    work permit (the non-classroom course form is on
    hold when this happens)
  • When the permit arrives, the students submit a
    copy of the permit to the registrars office, at
    which time, the non-classroom course form is
  • Students are then able to begin their internship.

  • Note The work permit does not cancel the study
    permit.  When students have a placement and are
    ready to submit the non-classroom course form,
    then the registrars office can proceed with
    the work permit application.  Student should
    give at least two months for the permit to
