A work permit after completing your studies can be issued based on the duration of the study program for a minimum of 8 months to a maximum of 3 years
The study program lasts at least 8 months and less than 2 years: the duration of the work permit should match the duration of the program.
Executives can issue a three-year work permit to those who have completed a master’s or doctoral degree in Canada after completing their studies if the eligible DLI has confirmed in the written confirmation of the completion of the program that the degree takes 16 to 23 months and does not regularly include scheduled breaks.
The study program lasts 2 years or longer. If the duration of the program is confirmed by the eligible DLI in the written confirmation of the program completion (e.g. an official letter or a transcript), the duration of the work permit should be 3 years.
The student has completed more than one eligible DLI program within 2 years: if the total duration of the programs is 2 years or more (or 1,800 hours or more for DVS and AVS programs in Quebec), the work permit may be up to up to 3 years.
Applicants must apply for a post-graduate work permit (PGWP) from the designated learning institution (PGWP) within 180 days of receiving written confirmation (e.g. an official letter or transcript) stating that they meet the requirements for have completed their degree program.
The 180 day calculation begins on the day the student receives the final grade or receives a formal written notification of the completion of the program, whichever comes first. It is the responsibility of the applicant to provide proof of receipt of the transcript. Officers can also confirm this date with the DLI.
