Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) applicants are allowed to work after travelling outside Canada
International student graduates will no longer need to remain in Canada while their Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) is in process. As of February 21, graduates who are eligible to work full time without a work permit will be able to maintain their ability to work legally in Canada even if they leave and re-enter the country.
In order to be allowed to work full time, international students must apply for their PGWP before their study permit expires. Keep in mind, it can take upwards of 90 days for a PGWP decision to go through.
