Post-graduation work permit (PGWP) – making an application
The instructions were updated to clarify that an applicant must have a valid status to apply for a post-graduation work permit (PGWP) from within Canada. Applicants whose study permit becomes invalid or expires must either leave Canada and apply for a PGWP from overseas or apply to restore their status as a student.
Restoration of status
The instructions have been rewritten to clarify when restoration is possible and to provide scenarios for restoration for students, workers and visitors.
