PGWP for International students in Canada
Updated: Jun 19, 2021
Great News keeps pouring in. Here's another announcement sure enough to bring smiles on many students.
International students who complete 100% of their program online will now be eligible for the three-year open work permit after graduation.
This means that you could work for ANY employer after you graduate.
The recent announcement on Feb 12, 2021 will assist international students by ensuring that studies completed outside Canada will count towards a future Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP), and by allowing international students to complete their entire program online from abroad and still be eligible for a PGWP. The measures apply to all international students who are enrolled in a PGWP-eligible program, and meet all other PGWP criteria.
These measures apply to all international students who:
Are enrolled in a PGWP-eligible program
Began, or will begin, a program in any semester from spring 2020 to fall 2021, or whose program was already in progress in March 2020
Have a study permit or approval for a study permit, or applied for a study permit prior to starting their program and are eventually approved
Meet all other PGWP criteria.
It is safe to say that Canada is mindful of the facts that have been of concern to most students.
