History, Affiliations and Rankings 

The University of Montreal, also referred to as The Université de Montréal, was founded in the year 1878 as a satellite campus of the Université Laval. It is a publicly funded research university located in the city of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Montreal is the largest city in the Quebec province, it is located on an island and is named after Mt. Royal, a hill located in its epicentre. It is regarded as one of Canada's most significant research universities, as well as one of the largest in terms of enrolment. The university was granted a city charter by the Legislative Assembly of Québec in 1920, and it was given the name Université de Montréal. It also legally merged the faculties and institutions that had previously been affiliated with it. The university became a public institution of higher learning and research in 1967, with possibilities for participation in its governance by professors, students, and alumni. The university established a standing committee in 1976 to assess the requirements of female students and enhance women's position on campus. The city is primarily French-speaking and is known for its low costs of living, active presence and importance of culture, and guaranteed safety. The university is proudly Canadian and reflects the multicultural city it’s been named after – so its language of instruction is French. Worldwide, the university ranks 88th and 5th in Canada according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. According to the QS World Rankings 2022, the university is ranked at #111

Infrastructure, Campuses and Courses

The university was started with three faculties — theology, law, and medicine — located in three different buildings: the Grand Séminaire de Montréal, the Sulpicians' Reading Room, and Château Ramezay. A fourth faculty, the Faculty of Arts, was created in 1887. The École Polytechnique de Montréal, which had been created in 1873, became connected with Université Laval à Montréal in the same year. The École des hautes études commerciales, Canada's first business school, which opened in 1907 and is now known as HEC Montréal, did the same in 1915. The main campus, which is located on the north slope of Mount Royal and spreads into the surrounding neighbourhoods, provides programmes on a wide range of subjects. The campus was designed by the famous architect Ernest Cormier, with international design influences and in the Art Deco style. Aside from this, the university has other outstanding campuses in Brossard which will open in Fall 2022, the MIL Campus which is home to the Science Complex, Laval Campus which will offer courses in health and education, Saint - Hyacinthe Campus (Faculty of Veterinary Medicine), Mauricie Campus that will allow students to have entire medical training, Longueuil Campus right next to the metro station, it is perfect for South Shore residents studying part-time, evenings and weekends. It also includes Lanaudiere Campus which will provide facilities geared to meet regional requests and needs. The university’s 13 faculties of education comprise more than 60 departments and 2 affiliated schools – the Polytechnique Montréal and HEC Montréal (School of Business). Its multiple educational institutions offer more than 600 programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels of study, as well as 71 doctoral programmes.

Part-Time Job Rules for International Students in Canada

  • You can work up to 20 hours per week during regular academic terms/semesters. To make up these hours, you can perform multiple jobs as long as they all match the requirements of your study permit.

  • You can work full-time if you're on a scheduled break throughout the school year, such as the winter and summer holidays or a fall or spring reading week. 

  • You have the option of working overtime or can also work in 2 part-time jobs that sum up to a bigger number of hours than normal. To work full-time before and after the break, you must be a full-time student. You are unable to work during the break before the start of your first academic session/semester.

  • If you're self-employed, you're also in charge of keeping account of the hours you work off-campus and demonstrating that you're following the terms of your study permit.

Types of Part-Time Jobs in Canada

There are two ways international students can get part-time jobs in Canada. They can either look for on-campus jobs or off-campus jobs.

On-Campus Jobs: On-campus jobs are available inside the university campus and are perfect for students as they can apply in different departments within their proximity. Students can only work on-campus in Canada if their study permit allows it. However, they can work without a work permit if they:

  • Are a holder of a Social Insurance Number (SIN)

  • Have enrolled in a program that is at least 6 months long and awards a diploma, certificate or degree by the end of it

  • Have enrolled in a secondary-level post-secondary academic, vocational or professional training program

Off-Campus Jobs: Off-campus jobs are relatively easy but not always in proximity. These jobs include office boy, receptionist, waiter/ waitress, call centre maintenance, data entry, etc. In Canada, students can work off-campus only if:

  • They are a student at a designated learning institution (DLI).

  • They are enrolled in a secondary-level vocational training programme or a post-secondary academic, vocational, or professional training programme.

  • They are enrolled in a programme that lasts at least 6 months and leads to a diploma, certificate, or degree.

  • They are a holder of a Social Insurance Number (SIN)

  • They are studying part-time because you are in your last semester and do not need a full course load, or you were a full-time student until your final semester.

Part-Time Job Rules for International Students in Canada

  • You can work up to 20 hours per week during regular academic terms/semesters. To make up these hours, you can perform multiple jobs as long as they all match the requirements of your study permit.

  • You can work full-time if you're on a scheduled break throughout the school year, such as the winter and summer holidays or a fall or spring reading week. 

  • You have the option of working overtime or can also work in 2 part-time jobs that sum up to a bigger number of hours than normal. To work full-time before and after the break, you must be a full-time student. You are unable to work during the break before the start of your first academic session/semester.

  • If you're self-employed, you're also in charge of keeping account of the hours you work off-campus and demonstrating that you're following the terms of your study permit.

Types of Part-Time Jobs in Canada

There are two ways international students can get part-time jobs in Canada. They can either look for on-campus jobs or off-campus jobs.

On-Campus Jobs: On-campus jobs are available inside the university campus and are perfect for students as they can apply in different departments within their proximity. Students can only work on-campus in Canada if their study permit allows it. However, they can work without a work permit if they:

  • Are a holder of a Social Insurance Number (SIN)

  • Have enrolled in a program that is at least 6 months long and awards a diploma, certificate or degree by the end of it

  • Have enrolled in a secondary-level post-secondary academic, vocational or professional training program

Off-Campus Jobs: Off-campus jobs are relatively easy but not always in proximity. These jobs include office boy, receptionist, waiter/ waitress, call centre maintenance, data entry, etc. In Canada, students can work off-campus only if:

  • They are a student at a designated learning institution (DLI).

  • They are enrolled in a secondary-level vocational training programme or a post-secondary academic, vocational, or professional training programme.

  • They are enrolled in a programme that lasts at least 6 months and leads to a diploma, certificate, or degree.

  • They are a holder of a Social Insurance Number (SIN)

  • They are studying part-time because you are in your last semester and do not need a full course load, or you were a full-time student until your final semester.
