Update on Post Graduate Work Permit Eligibility

Asian Chinese Business People Meeting

You can complete up to 100% of your studies online from outside Canada.

All of the time you spent studying online from outside Canada between spring 2020 and August 31, 2022, counts toward the length of a PGWP. This applies even if you’re completing 2 study programs.

If you’re completing 2 study programs, you can finish 100% of your studies online if the programs were ongoing or started between March 2020 and summer 2022, and

  • both study programs are with an eligible DLI and are completed within 2 years, and
  • each program meets all PGWP eligibility requirements and is at least 8 months long

The following time won’t count toward the length of a PGWP:

  • time spent studying outside Canada after August 31, 2022
  • time spent studying before you applied for a study permit
