A co-op work permit is linked to a specific DLI and area of study. If you transfer from one institution to another, you will need to obtain a new co-op work permit which indicates your new DLI and area of study. For information on how to obtain a new co-op work permit, please visit, Co-op Work Permit on the NorQuest College website.

You need to inform IRCC (immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) that you have transferred to another institution.

If you haven’t yet done so, please follow the steps outlined on the IRCC website to update them about the school change.

If you have not yet applied for the co-op work permit, please do so as soon as possible. All international students need to obtain a co-op work permit in order to complete any work-integrated learning placements, as per the Canadian immigration regulations. Please note that the study permit does not cover the work-integrated learning component of your program.

You can submit a co-op work permit application online, along with this supporting letter issued by the college.

At the time you arrive in Canada, you should receive both a hard copy of your study permit AND a separate hard copy of your co-op work permit at the border (port of entry).

Please ask an immigration officer at the port of entry for the co-op work permit to be issued to you, in case they forget to do so.

For detailed instructions on how to apply for the co-op work permit, please contact us at international@norquest.ca.
