The Canadian Immigration Service has revised the policy details for international students applying for a Post Graduate Work Permit. International students must keep studying full-time during their study abroad! If you leave school due to illness, being suspended by the school, or other reasonable reasons, you must meet the following two requirements:
1⃣️Look for school approval and obtain a written authorization certificate provided by the department.
2⃣️The total time away from school/non-full-time study cannot exceed 150 days.
Failure to do so will result in the rejection of the graduation work permit! All students studying in Canada must pay attention.
In addition, the 5 major questions that students often ask about graduation work permits, Yurun’s assistant is here to provide answers for you:

The validity period of the work permit is the same as your study period. If the study time is 1.5 years, the work permit is also 1.5 years. If your study abroad program is more than 2 years and meets the requirements for applying for PGWP, you will get a graduation work permit for up to 3 years.
