Program delivery update: Students – Post Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP)
This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada staff. It is posted on the Department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.
February 21, 2020
The instructions have been updated to reflect that
- students who have completed their program of study are allowed to work while they are waiting for a decision on their post-graduation work permit application
- applicants eligible to work full time without a work permit while waiting for a decision on their application under paragraph 186(w) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) maintain their eligibility to work even after leaving and re-entering Canada
