IRCC Program Delivery Update: PGWP

Study in Canada scholarship recipients now eligible for PGWP

Before, the IRCC said that students receiving funding from Global Affairs Canada could not qualify for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program. 
 
However, Global Affairs has introduced the Study in Canada Scholarship. This scholarship is intended to attract skilled individuals from many different countries to a wide range of Canadian study programs.

Accordingly, the government changed the instructions and some Study in Canada Scholarship recipients are now eligible for the Post-Graduate Work Permit.

Please not that not all GAC funding recipeints are eligible for the PGWP.

For more information, please see the IRCC's update.
