Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

International students and alumni can apply for the following work permit programs. As an employer, all you have to worry about is the hiring process.

  • Off-campus work: International students may work up to 20 hours a week off-campus while completing their studies.
  • Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP): Employers may hire international students for up to three years after graduation.
  • Co-op programs: Students applying for co-op work terms and internships require a work permit.
  • Permanent residency: There are several government programs to assist international students who are seeking permanent residency.

Labour and Salary Resources

The following list includes external resources regarding labour laws and salary.

The Ontario Ministry of Labour determines employment standards, workplace health and safety and labour relations. The Employment Standards Self Service Tool is available on the ministry’s website at Ontario.ca/ESATools. The tool is designed to promote self-reliance amongst workplace parties, making it easier for employers and employees in Ontario to understand and comply with the Employment Standards Act (ESA). It also includes calculations to determine whether the amount paid to an employee meets the minimum standards of the ESA.
