Some programs require a mandatory paid/un-paid internship or work placement as part of the academic curriculum. International students in these programs must apply for a co-op work permit as well as a study permit.
Processing times for co-op work permits vary from country to country. It is important to begin the application process as soon as possible as processing time can take anywhere from one to four months.
