Hello, all

I am an international student in Canada.In April 2018 I will apply for postgraduate work permit.
I would like to ask 
 1 what is the requirement for applying for the post-grad work permit?
2 What is a better option to apply online or by paper?
3 what does it means full-time job? Can it be a contract job? but if it is full time will it work?
Or does it depends on how many hours?
Can you clarify this?

I need the urgent response.

Best regards

Hi Abano, thank you for reaching out to us. Here are the answers to your questions:
1- To apply for a post-graduate work permit, you must fulfill several requirements. You can consult our page here for the complete requirements:
2- It is best to apply online for faster processing times.
3- A full time employment is at least 30 hours per week. Employment is when you are considered an employee of the employer, receiving a salary. Certain contractual work can be considered as self-employment if you are not receiving a salary, but are sending invoices to receive fees for your work and services.
