How to Work in Canada After Graduation

A post-graduation work permit is a programme that allows international students studying at Canadian colleges to work in Canada after completing their studies in Canada.

How to Work in Canada: Post-Graduation Work Permit

For a post-graduation work permit (PGWP), students must complete their graduation from a designated learning institution (DLI).

What are designated learning institutions?

College or university in Canada that has been given permission to accept  international students by a provincial or territorial government

If your study course (program) was less than 8 months, you are not eligible for a PGWP.

How long is a post-graduation work permit valid?

If our study course (program) was 2 years or more, you would get PGWP validity for 3 years.

For courses lasting 8 months or less than 2 years, we will get PGWP validity for the same length as our study program.

What if passport expires before PGWP’s validity period?

We need to extend our passport; otherwise, we will get PGWP that’s valid until our passport expires.

What happens if PGWP is expired?

You may be eligible for a one-time open work permit of up to 18 months under a new public policy, if your PGWP expires between Sep 20,  2021, and Dec 31, 2022.
