Flexibility in post-graduation work permit rules to help international students and Universities
If Fall 2020 courses will be on-line due to #COVID-19, Post-graduation work permit eligibility won't be affected for international students. This is in-line with guidance provided to Students already studying in Canada or whose program had a Spring or Summer date.
Students in this situation may begin their classes while outside Canada and complete up to 50% of their program via distance learning if they cannot travel to Canada sooner.
Time will not be deducted from the length of a future Post-Graduation work permit for studies completed outside of Canada, up to December 31, 2020.
