Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP)
Foreign nationals currently in possession of a valid study permit and who are about to graduate from a post-secondary institution may apply for a postgraduate open work permit under the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP). An open work permit enables the foreign national to seek and accept employment, and to work for any employer for a specified period of time depending on the duration of the study program up to three years. An open work permit also exempts the foreign national’s employer from the requirement of obtaining a positive labour market impact assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), which is generally required to obtain a work permit. It can consider as a pathway to become permanent residence in Canada. To be eligible under this program, foreign nationals must:
-have continuously studied full-time in Canada for more than eight months.
-apply for work permit within 90 days of graduation of receiving written confirmation from the institute regarding completing the program.
-have a valid study permit at the time of applying for the work permit.
