Canada: Post Study work VISA

Canada offers a post-study work visa program for international students who have graduated from a Canadian educational institution. This program, known as the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP), allows students to live and work in Canada for a period of up to three years after completing their studies.

To be eligible for the PGWP, students must have completed a program of study of at least 8 months from a designated learning institution (DLI) in Canada, and they must have been enrolled in the program on a full-time basis. Additionally, students must have maintained their student visa status throughout their studies.

One of the benefits of the PGWP is that it allows students to gain valuable work experience in their field of study, which can be beneficial for their future careers. Additionally, the program can provide students with the opportunity to network and make professional connections in Canada. To apply for the PGWP, students must complete an online application, and submit it, along with required documents and fees, to the Government of Canada. The application process can take several weeks, so it's important to plan ahead and apply well in advance of the completion of your studies.

It's also worth noting that the PGWP is not a path to permanent residency in Canada, but it's a great opportunity for students to gain valuable work experience in Canada, network and make professional connections, and even gain Canadian work experience, which can help them later on to apply for a permanent residency through different programs such as the Canadian Experience Class, or Provincial Nomination Programs.

Overall, the Post-Graduation Work Permit is a valuable opportunity for international students who have graduated from a Canadian educational institution to gain work experience in their field of study for a period of up to three years. However, it's important to plan ahead and understand the application process and eligibility requirements, as well as other potential opportunities for long-term stay in Canada.
