Clarifications have been made for post-graduation work permit (PGWP) applicants residing in Quebec.

The “Post-graduation work permit eligibility requirements” section has been renamed to “Post-graduation work permit-eligible students”.

A section has been added called “Temporary Public Policy to Facilitate the Issuance of an Open Work Permit to Former or Current Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) Holders during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic”. It provides information on a facilitative measure introduced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Work permit duration, eligibility requirements, required documents and application submission are all included in this section.
