Post Graduation Work Permit
A post-graduation work permit (PGWP) allows graduates to stay in Canada and work full time for the time period of up to three years after the graduation. The graduation, of course, must be from a post-secondary institution in Canada. Depending on the length of your program, you will receive a specific length of your post-graduation work permit.
To apply for a post-graduation work permit, you should meet the following requirements:
- Have a completed program of study with at least eight months of duration. You must present a degree, diploma or certificate as a confirmation of your graduation.
- Studied each academic session full-time except if you studied your final academic session part-time or you took a gap in studies with a legitimate authorization for less than 150 days.
To apply for a post-graduation work permit, you do not need a job offer nor a specific field to work in. You can receive a PGWP only once in a lifetime. In case you are planning to keep studying in Canada, we recommend you to discuss the time of application with the International Student Advising.
