You may be employed by the university, a department, a faculty member, the student organisation, or a private contractor who operates within campus premises.
As for the pay, you will be able to earn approximately CA$42,565 per year or CA$22 per hour* while working on campus. Make sure you budget your expenses and plan well how to use your part-time earnings.
An off-campus job allows you to explore part-time work opportunities outside the boundaries of your study campus. This gives you a wider palate of options to choose from and may even help you get familiar with newer regions in the city you are in. Tutor, waiter, and attendant are some of the popular off-campus jobs. Just like on-campus jobs, there are strict rules governing off-campus jobs as well. If you do not adhere by them, you may be asked to leave the county. Keep in mind:
You should not work for more than 20 hours during a regular study week. However, you can work full time during scheduled leaves.
