Work Permit

Many Foreign Students who have finished pursuing their post-secondary education in Canada always look to reside and get Canadian job experience. After concluding their education in a program at a post-secondary institution in Canada, a foreign graduate could apply for Post-Graduate Work Permit that let them do the job in the country. To retain foreign students, the IRCC is making an effort by operating this program known as Post Graduate Work Permit, permitting those students to do the job for an employer in the country. Students do not need to get an employer at the time of applying for this permit.

Eligibility Criteria for Canada Post Graduate Work Permit

To get entitled to a post-graduate work permit, foreign students should have studied for a full-time period of eight months before the conclusion of the program. They should have graduated from a public post-secondary college or university.

They should Apply for the Canada Work Permit within three months of getting confirmation from their educational institution that they have met the eligibility requirement of their program.

Students should complete and pass the study program and get written a notice that they are entitled to getting their diploma, or degree certificate and students should have got a valid study permit while applying for this work permit.
