How To Stay in Canada After Graduation: Post-Graduation Work Permits | Evelyn Ackah | Calgary Immigration Lawyer

IRCC updated the requirements for international students applying for post-graduation work permits to give students more time to submit their application. A post-graduation work permit allows students who graduated from a participating Canadian post-secondary institution to gain work experience in Canada.

On February 14, 2019, the following post-graduation work permit updates went into effect:

  • The deadline to apply for a post-graduation work permit has been extended from 90 days to 6 months (180 days).
  • Applicants are no longer required to hold a valid study permit when applying for a post-graduation work permit; a student must have had a valid study permit at some time during the 180 days.
