Canada announces major study and work visa change for fall 2020
International students will be able to enroll in online courses while abroad this fall and still be eligible for a Post-Graduation Work Permit after moving to Canada.
Canada is making a major change to its Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) rules for international students who want to study in Canada beginning this fall.
The PGWP enables international students to gain Canadian work experience after completing their educational program at a Canadian designated learning institution (DLI).
International students must have completed a full-time program of at least eight months in length at a DLI in order to be eligible for the PGWP. Their study program must have lead to a diploma, degree, or certificate. The ultimate length of the PGWP depends on the length of the student’s program of study in Canada.
