Since January 27, immigration refufmgees and citizenship Canada (IRCC) has been accepting applications from post graduate work permit (PGWP) holders who have been their permits expire or their permits are about to expire.

The purpose of this policy is to give PGWP holders more time to get the Canadian work experience they need to then become eligible for Canadian immigration program. Federal and provincial governments place great emphasis on retaining former international students as immigrants. The reason for this government research shows that former international students tend to integrate quickly into the Canadian job market upon gaining permanent residence.
