Will PGWP Get Harder to Obtain?

The IRCC is considering changes to the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) eligibility criteria. The aim is to align PGWP issuance with Canada's labor market needs. If implemented, these changes could make it more challenging for international students to obtain a PGWP.

What This Means for Students

Currently, PGWPs allow graduates from Canadian institutions to gain valuable work experience. However, future adjustments might restrict eligibility, potentially focusing on specific fields or regions with labor shortages.

Stay Prepared

While no official changes have been announced yet, international students should stay updated on these potential adjustments and prepare for stricter requirements.
