Volunteering On-Campus and in Canada

As an international student, you may be eligible to volunteer at some positions without a work permit, for example, volunteering on campus through student clubs and organizations.  However, some unpaid positions are considered “work” and international students in these positions should abide by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s off-campus work requirements.

International students are encouraged to check with the International Education Centre before accepting any on- or off-campus volunteer positions.
