On February 14, 2019, the Government of Canada made several changes to the Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) Program Guidelines. These new guidelines are effective for all PGWP applications received on or after February 14, 2019.

The most notable changes made to the PGWP Program include the removal of the requirement to hold a valid Study Permit when applying for a PGWP and the extension of the deadline to apply from 90 days to six months.

PGWP applicants who have been refused the work permit based on the prior guidelines (before February 14, 2019) may submit a new application under the new guidelines, if they are eligible to apply.

Borders Law Firm welcomes the changes to the PGWP program as they provide international students with greater flexibility as to when they can apply for this type of work permit.

The team at Borders - specifically Devika and Jenny - were an extraordinary support in navigating the Permanent Residency process. They were responsive and easily available, and incredibly detailed and thorough in their work. I strongly recommend them for anyone navigating the immigration process, and feel so grateful for their expertise and kindness that made a tricky process feel smooth.

Devika and John were excellent. They understood how this process would change my life and helped me get to the US. John was extremely kind and thorough. When my employer in the US ended up trying to take advantage of me, they helped me transfer my visa to a new employer and had so much empathy for my situation and now I have a job in California that makes me so happy while helping others. I am beyond grateful for their kindness and service. I will be using them for any changes to my status going forward.
