Congratulations to all of our Students who are in their final semester of study!
Before we say farewell, here is some important information for you.
Hopefully when your study permit was issued it gave you an additional 90 days after the semester ends, i.e. November 20th 2016 for students finishing in Summer 2016. If not we strongly advise you extend your study permit to allow time to apply for your Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) .
Learn more about the Eligibility requirements for the PGWP and the length of the work permit you will receive by Clicking Here.
In order to apply for your PGWP you will require your:
- Confirmation of Graduation
- Final Transcript (the transcript must say Credential Awarded to be considered your final transcript).
These documents are typically available 5-6 weeks after the last day of class; you will be notified by email when the documents are available for pick up.
Important Information: Your Study Permit must also still be valid when you apply for your PGWP. Learn more about applying for your PGWP by Visiting Here.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada provides processing times for all of their application types online (i.e. Study Permit, Work Permit, Visa). Become familiar with this page and check it frequently, as it is updated weekly. Click Here.
