The study found the number of first-time Canada study permit holders to rise from around 75,000 in the mid-2000s to 250,000 in 2019. This quantum leap is consistent with the trend of a greater proportion of international students obtaining the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP).

According to the study, over the period 2008 to 2018, the annual number of new Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) holders increased six-fold, from 10,300 to 64,700.

Close to three-quarters of all PGWP holders transitioned to permanent residence within five years of obtaining their PGWP.

PGWP allows Canada to retain international talent in return for the possibility of obtaining an open work permit to stay and work in Canada. This open work permit could end up in permanent residence status in a matter of years’ time. Those with college and master’s level programs had the highest success rate in becoming permanent residents.

The study notes, “On the one hand, the PGWP allows international students who have graduated from a recognized Canadian post-secondary institution to gain work experience in Canada and can provide the necessary job experience required to apply for some permanent residence streams.

Finding the Best Study Abroad Consultant in Dubai

The PGWPP allows bridging the gap between a Canadian education and in-country work experience. Further, it can improve the chances of obtaining Canadian permanent residence through programs like the federal Express Entry, the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), or the Quebec Experience Program (PEQ).

To be eligible for the program, candidates must have completed a program of study of at least eight months at an eligible institution in Canada. The duration of the permit is then based on the length of the completed study program, up to a maximum of three years.

As an open work permit, the post-graduation work permit allows international graduates to work in any occupation anywhere in Canada and to change employers at any time.
