Navigating Study Permit Work Hour Caps: Impact on Businesses

As we approach the end of April, businesses in Canada are bracing for a significant shift with the capping of international student open work visas on April 30th. This transition presents various challenges for organizations as they navigate workforce planning and talent acquisition in the months ahead.

International students have been valued members of our workforce, bringing diverse skills and perspectives to businesses across a wide range of industries. Through their contributions, they have enriched our workplaces and contributed to our economy's growth. However, with the capping of open work visas, businesses may face uncertainties in filling critical roles and maintaining operational continuity.

The impact of this change extends beyond individual businesses to the broader community. Many international students have forged deep connections within our society, contributing not only to our workforce but also to our cultural diversity and social fabric.
