Non-Canadian postdoctorals must have a valid Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) work permit to legally work in Canada, and must apply for the permit prior to coming to McGill to take on a postdoctoral appointment.
Please note that international postdocs on work permits are prohibited from attending any educational institution and taking any academic, professional or vocational training course (as stated on the permit).
