Post Graduation Work Permit
- Graduates of Canadian post-secondary institutions are eligible for a one-time post-graduation work permit after completing their studies.
- These open work permits grant work authorization to international students, allowing them to gain valuable Canadian work experience that may be used as part of a later application for Permanent Residency.
- A work permit under the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP) may be issued for the length of the study program, up to a maximum of three years.
- A post-graduation work permit cannot be valid for longer than the student’s study program, and the study program must be a minimum of eight months in length.
