A lot of international students come to Canada every year with all kind of Ambitions. Settling in foreign land, studying and even working part-time to support themselves while living here sometimes becomes a bit of challenge. It gets a bit harder for them to manage time between study, work, doing other chores around and hence they might lack time for their studies some students do you think that as long as they graduate from their school from a particular program they will receive the post-graduate work permit. However, this is not the case officers review each and every application individually to issue the work permit or not. There are various factors that can play a part in it and you're going to discuss some of those today. Students sometimes don't pay attention to the fact that their grades can also affect the outcome of their post-graduate work permit application and even the length of the work permit if you score low grades in a lot of courses during and so even after they graduate successfully they will still be at the risk of getting work permit refused or getting it for a shorter duration of time that you should get it for.

Another important factor that can play a part in deciding the outcome of your work permit application is including the right paperwork , right transcripts like with all necessary components, even though transcripts that say official transcripts from the school can miss the important information that IRCC is looking for so make sure you cross check your transcripts before you apply. Fill right and appropriate information in the form.Although the work permit application seems very simple however there are few important details that an applicant might overlook while sending out the paperwork so if you're unsure please do cross check with an experienced person at your Institute or any other professional.

Students must keep study as their priority in Canada if they are the study permit holders because that is the ground for them to stay legally in Canada and explore all possible future options for settling in this beautiful country. It is very important to maintain legal status as a student for the entire time that you hold the study permit how you maintain the legal status? the answer to this question might vary from school to school but in general, if you are pursuing three courses anywhere from 9 to 15 credits per semester than you are considered as a full-time international student.

Post graduation work permit for international students

Great news for international students in Canada- IRCC has increased the time frame to apply for postgraduate work permits from 90 days to 180 days for international students after they finish their program of study.
Additionally, IRCC has also removed the requirement of a valid study permit, which was a must before, to apply for a post-graduate work permit.

This is indeed a piece of very positive news and makes it easier for fresh graduates to submit their paperwork to obtain a postgraduate work permit.

The postgraduate work permit application has always been very important for international students as it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and restricted time frame has always contributed to add more stress to the situation.

Moreover, these new conditions will allow more time for reapplying if a student gets refused for the post-graduate work permit.


BC PNP has launched ENTREPRENEUR IMMIGRATION - REGIONAL PILOT program, which is designed to attract entrepreneurs across the world to start their business and settle in the regional community of BC with a population lesser than 75000.
