Changes to Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP) Application - February 14, 2019

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) recently published a program delivery update concerning the processing of post graduate work permit program. If you are an International Students or is applying for visa to study in Canada, this is important.

The program delivery instructions have been updated to include a series of facilitative measures, such as
  • the removal of the requirement to hold a valid study permit when applying for a post-graduation work permit
  • the extension of the deadline to apply from 90 days to 6 months
This allows students to have more time to submit their post-graduation work permit application once they obtain their notice of graduation from the school. 

Based on the updated instructions, here are key points regarding post graduate work permit application:
  • Validity: A post-graduation work permit may be issued based on the length of the study program for a minimum of 8 months up to a maximum of 3 years.
  • Eligibility Requirements:  To obtain a post graduate work permit, the applicants must have completed an academic, vocational or professional training program at an eligible institution in Canada that is at least 8 months in duration leading to a degree, diploma or certificate as a Full Time Student.
  • Spouses of PGWP holders: spouse or common-law partner applying for open work permit will need to attach proof that the principal worker (PGWP holder) is employed in an occupation in skill level 0, A or B
  • Ineligible Programs: Students are ineligible for a post-graduation work permit if they have completed the following:
  1. an English as a second language or French as a second language course or program of study
  2. general interest or self-improvement courses
  3. a course or program of study at a private career college 
  • Eligible Institutions: The applicant must provide evidence that the program or programs of study were taken in Canada at one of the following eligible Canadian designated learning institutions (DLIs): 
  1. a public post-secondary institution
  2. a private post-secondary institution that operates under the same rules and regulations as public institutions in Quebec
  3. a private secondary or post-secondary institution in Quebec offering qualifying programs of 900 hours or longer leading t a diploma of vocational studies (DVS) o an attestation of vocational specialization (AVS)
  4. a Canadian, private institution authorized by provincial statute to confer degrees, such as an associate, bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree, but only if the student is enrolled in a program of study leading to a degree, as authorized by the province, which may not include all programs of study offered by the private institution

changing your program of study can be another Headache!

Yes , you are allowed to change the program of your study once you are already in Canada.
However there are disadvantages of changing your Program.

so let me tell you  what are these problems.

#1 if the program you wish to apply is more than the length of your study permit, you need to re apply for a new study permit.. you dont need to apply again for  a visa if you are already in Canada , you will need a VISA if you wish to enter in Canada.

you will need  another Letter of Acceptance plus proof you can support  yourself  and any family members with you while you are in Canada..

#2 changes in the Permanent residency pathway might be a problem too, Canadian Immigration Consultancy Clients, undergoes in a career planning not only for a visa application process  , meaning we help them to choose the proper program  so that in the end we can help them on  how to apply for a permanent residence visa  application. if you are not aware on what pathway you need to take, you are in a  trouble..

in Example : you are a registered Nurse in the Philippines and you have a solid work experience in , then you are planning to study in Canada.  do not apply for a study visa unless you read this 

most of the Registered Nurses i talk to , couple of months ago they want to study atleast one year, well i understand on where they are coming from, studying in Canada is too costly.. however there are no shortcuts i hope you read my blog    do not apply for a study visa unless you read this .

when i asked them what program  you wish to study, they simply reply  " i want a caregiver course or program ".

then they will get surprised when i  respond to them that choosing this program will not help them , in their PR application.. Caregiver under Home Support Workers  are not eligible to apply for PR .
NOC Code of Canada will help you determine if your occupations are belong to priority list of occupations .

Canada ranks No. 1 in global Quality of Life list

Canada ranks No. 1 in global Quality of Life list
Canada ranks No. 1 in Global Quality of Life List! 

The criteria for Quality Life is based on  the following factors: 
a good job market, affordable, economically stable, family friendly, income equality, politically stable, safe, well-developed public education system, well-developed public health system.

Beyond the essential ideas of broad access to food and housing, to quality education and health care, 
to employment that will sustain us, quality of life may also include intangibles such as job security, political stability,
individual freedom and environmental quality.

What social scientists do agree on is that material wealth is not the most important factor in assessing a life lived well. 
The results of the Quality of Life sub-ranking survey reflect that sensibility.
Next to Canada in terms of Quality Life are Sweden, Denmark and Norway. 

For Overall Best Country Ranking, Canada ranks No. 3 with Switzerland in the No. 1 Spot. Australia ranked 7 and New Zealand in the No. 12 spot.

Fortunately for her, she found out about Gateway to Canada through one of our clients. She now get

her Study Visa together with her husband who will be going to Canada as Temporary Foreign Worker. 

Patrick Reyes with Mr.&Mrs.Magcawas

We advised her to change her program and how to properly document her proof of funds. We also fixed her personal study plan.
