International students applying for a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) will now have 6 months to apply once they obtain their final marks and will no longer require a valid study permit. The changes were announced on February 14, along with other modifications to Canada’s popular Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) program. The extension doubles the amount of time recent graduates have to apply for a PGWP once their school issues their notice of graduation, from 90 days to 180 days. Another corresponding change was the removal of the requirement that international graduates have a valid study permit when applying for a PGWP.
