Post GraduationWorking Permit
To work in Canada after you graduate, you need a work permit. The work experience you gain while working may help you qualify for permanent residence.
You may be eligible for a post-graduation work permit (PGWP) if you graduated from a designated learning institution (DLI) and want to stay in Canada temporarily to work.
Graduation from a DLI doesn’t automatically make you eligible for a PGWP. Check the DLI list to find out which schools have eligible programs.
You have 180 days after you get your final marks to apply for a PGWP.
