If you'd like to apply for immigration to Canada but are not qualified yet, consider taking the student-work pathway to permanent residency!
One of the major changes to the Canada international student program was implemented on June 1, 2014. Effective that date, international students no longer needed to apply for an off-campus work permit. You may also be eligible to obtain a Post-graduate Work Permit after you complete your program, you must meet some requirements including the following:
* You must have continuously studied full time in Canada;
* Your completed program of study should last at least eight months;
In addition, you must have graduated from any of the following:
* A public post-secondary institution, such as a college, trade/technical school, university or CEGEP (in Quebec) OR;
* A private post-secondary institution that operates under the same rules and regulations as public institutions OR;
* If you studied in Québec, a private secondary or post-secondary institution (in Quebec) offering qualifying programs of 900 hours or longer leading to a diplôme d’études professionnelles (DEP) or an attestation de spécialisation professionnelle (ASP), OR;
* A Canadian private institution authorized by provincial statute to confer degrees but only if you are enrolled in one of the programs of study leading to a degree as authorized by the province and not in all programs of study offered by the private institution.
The official length of your study program is important as IRCC may use this to determine the length of your Post-graduate Work Permit.
