Canada extends post-graduation work permits for international students, express draws from July

Ottawa: The immigration minister Sean Fraser has announced that former international students who are in Canada and have a post-graduation work permit expiring between January and December 2022 will qualify for an additional open work permit of up to 18 months. 

"We are exploring a simplified, expeditious process for this, and details will be made available in the weeks ahead," he said adding that to help bring even more skilled workers quickly to Canada, we have doubled the number of permanent residence decisions made in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the same time period in 2021. 

From January 1, 2022 to March 31, 2022, we have made over 156,000 final decisions on permanent residence applications and, through these efforts, Canada welcomed over 113,000 new permanent residents in the first quarter of 2022.

Meanwhile, the Express Entry invitations to FSWP and CEC candidates will also resume by early July.
