What is a Post-Graduation Work Permit?

A Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) is for international students who complete an eligible Canadian post-secondary program.

The Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) is an open work permit, meaning it allows the student to work for any employer of their choice in Canada and to work for any Canadian employer without needing a job offer. It allows international student graduates to work anywhere in Canada for up to three years.
