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.

I and my family want to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to Devika, John and the team at Borders Law firm for assisting us with the PRTD application for my mother at a time when most processing was closed due to lockdowns. They also worked proactively with us to establish a good strategy with back up plans which gave us sufficient information and assurance. Very responsive and forthcoming with information. Proactive in processing but at the same time they put enough time in the application and the supporting details to have high quality of the application. As a result our application was processed in 1 go at a time when it was critical and sensitive time for the family. Thank you again.
