Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) - Academic & Professional Placement (APP) Services

International students that want to start their studies in Canada are facing many uncertainties due to COVID-19 related restrictions, specifically travel restrictions.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has just announced important updates to post-graduation work permit (PGWP) eligibility, providing students that have to start their studies online with more flexibility.
Contact Us to learn about your eligibility and three (3) new measures being introduced, and what they mean for you and your study opportunities.
See if you qualify to begin Your Under-Grad or Post-Grad Studies ONLINE & AT HOME, . . . and the added benefits offered to International Students to save and still be able to advance their studies during the non-travel periods:
  • Students can study online from abroad until April 30, 2021, with no time deducted from the length of a future PGWP, as long as 50% of their program of study is eventually completed in Canada.
  • Students enrolled in a program that is 8-12 months in length, with a start date from May to September 2020, can complete their entire program online from abroad and still be eligible for a PGWP.
  • Students who have enrolled in a program with a start date between May to September 2020 and study online up to April 30, 2021:
    • Those who are eligible to graduate from more than one eligible program of study, may be able to combine the length of their programs of study when they apply for a PGWP in the future, as long as their total studies are completed in Canada.
