Can I take Summer 2022 semester off and work?

About this form

This tool is designed for current Douglas College international students who would like to have a better understanding of:
  1. when the scheduled breaks are in their programs, and
  2. their eligibility to work in Canada during scheduled breaks.
Please note that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) allows each institution to define full-time studies and scheduled breaks.

The summer semester (from May to August) may be considered a scheduled break at Douglas College unless summer is your first or last semester, please check the this link to view more details when submitting your request for scheduled breaks.


This questionnaire assumes you are taking courses exclusively at Douglas College. This form is intended for general inquiries only and should not be used as a legal immigration document. The burden of proof is on the student to comply with the conditions of your study permit and to ensure your eligibility and compliance.
