Additional facilitative measures have been added to the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) Program. The measures extend and expand on temporary measures put in place earlier in the COVID-19 pandemic.
For all programs undertaken and ongoing between March 2020 and the fall 2021 semester,
- time spent studying outside Canada up to December 31, 2021 will count towards the eligibility for and length of a future PGWP
- students can complete up to 100% of their program online from outside Canada while remaining eligible for a PGWP
