Post-Graduation Work Permit Program

The Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWP) issues work permits to foreign post-secondary students who wish to remain temporarily in Canada after graduation to work in their field of study.

Work permits issued under the PGWP program can be valid for the length of the study program, up to a maximum of three years. The study program must be at least for 8 months.
