Post-Graduation Work Permit Program – Private Training Students Not Eligible

Notice Body

Graduates of private training institutions are not eligible for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP). Only international students who have graduated from programs of 8+ months at public post-secondary institutions or degree programs at authorized private institutions are eligible to apply for a PGWP. Some graduates of commercial flight training programs are also eligible to apply. Issuing Post-Graduation Work Permits (PGWP) for international students is the responsibility of the federal Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
