Why Study in Canada?

Canada is an excellent choice for international study. With many advantages for studying in Canada, we have taken the greatest ones and listed them below.

  • Post graduate work permits

Post graduate work permits are given to overseas students who have completed a program of study in Canada. PGWPs enable the bearer to work for any employer in Canada for as many hours as they like.

PGWPs are suitable for eight to three years and are an excellent opportunity to get significant job experience in Canada. In addition, once an applicant has worked in Canada, they have many options for obtaining permanent residency in Canada.

What is a Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP)?

Post Graduation Work Permits (PGWPs) are available to international students who have graduated from a Canadian Designated Learning Institution (DLI). PGWPs are open work permits that enable foreign nationals to work for any firm and in any location inside the country.

The PGWP does not need a Labor Market Impact Assessment, unlike other Canadian work permits (LMIA). PGWPs allow qualifying graduates to get necessary job experience in Canada. Many foreign citizens become eligible for Canada’s permanent residence programs after gaining sufficient work experience.

Who is eligible for the PGWP?

An international student must be at least 18 years old and have completed an 8-month full-time program in Canada to be eligible for a Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP). In addition, the study program must have been completed at a Designated Learning Institution (DLI). Furthermore, a foreign national must apply for a work permit within 180 days after their educational program finishing.

If an applicant is physically in Canada, they must be in good standing at the time of submission. Before applying for the PGWP, individuals might apply for guest status if their study permit has expired or will expire. Applicants who apply for a PGWP before their study permit expires, on the other hand, are permitted to start working full time immediately while their application is being processed. Applicants may apply for a PGWP from anywhere in the world.

How long does it take?

The processing time for a PGWP might range from 80 to 180 days. You can work in Canada while waiting for your PGWP, as long as you apply before your student permit expires.From the day you finish all of your program of study prerequisites, you have 180 days to apply for your PGWP.

After finishing your education, you may now apply for a PGWP from another country if you leave Canada. Previously, applications for post-graduation work permits had to be filed only from inside Canada. Additional paperwork may be asked if a PGWP application is filed outside Canada, depending on the visa office that will process the application.

Can I apply for a work permit?

A PGWP does not restrict you from asking for another work permit in the future. If you are qualified, you may apply for both an LMIA and an LMIA exempt permit. Still, given your Canadian work experience, it may be worth considering applying for Canadian permanent residence.

How many times can you apply?

A PGWP can only be applied once. Therefore, if you want to continue your studies after your first program, or if you wish to pursue a lengthier degree program in Canada, you should apply for your PGWP early. Using after the most extended length of study will result in a PGWP with a three-year validity term.

How it can help?

The Post Graduation Work Program in Canada is intended to offer a reasonable pathway for overseas students in the country to get permanent residence status. An applicant is in an excellent position to apply under the Canadian Express Entry immigration system if they can connect their Canadian education with substantial full-time job experience in the nation. In addition, an Express Entry candidate with a Canadian educational degree and job experience will get crucial bonus points toward their complete ranking system (CRS) score, making them more competitive against other applicants for permanent residence status.

Provincial nominee programs (PNPs), or the Quebec Experience Class program if you studied in Quebec, are other immigration categories favor individuals with Canadian education and work experience.
