The Canadian government changed the terms of Canadian study visas in 2014. As a result of these reforms, the majority of study permits now automatically provide international students the right to work while studying in Canada.

A post-graduation employment permit allows an international student, who has graduated from a designated learning institution (DLI), to stay in Canada for a particular length of time after completing their studies. It is a work permit that allows you to work for any employer in Canada. Work experience in Canada can also assist you to qualify for a Canadian permanent residence, usually through the Canadian Experience Class or an employer-driven Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
Please keep in mind that some of the DLI programs are NOT qualified for a post-graduation work permit. Before enrolling in a program, ensure that you are eligible for the PGWP.
