Program delivery update: COVID-19 – Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP)

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

February 7, 2022

The instructions have been updated to extend the facilitation measures (that were previously ending on December 31, 2021) until August 31, 2022. Students who were enrolled in a post-graduation work permit (PGWP)-eligible program from March 2020 until the summer 2022 semester can complete 100% of their program of study outside of Canada and still retain their eligibility for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP).
