International Students Changes to the PGWP

International students: temporary changes to the post-graduation work permit (PGWP) program put in place earlier in the pandemic are being extended and expanded.
Studies completed outside Canada up to December 31, 2021, will count towards a future PGWP and allow international students to complete their entire program online from abroad while still being eligible for a PGWP.

These temporary changes apply to all international students who are enrolled in a PGWP-eligible program, and meet all other PGWP criteria.
