6 Months Extension in PGWP (Post Graduate Work Permit) for International Students

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!


We the International Students and Foreign Workers have spent a significant part
of our lives in Canada. Due to present situation of COVID -19, majority of the
sectors are facing the extreme lock down situation. The International Students
who are on the Post Graduate Work Permit are badly/crucially affected by this
current situation. As Foreign Workers/International Students, we have to work
for a specific period of time so that we are qualified to file an application for
Permanent Residency. To gain the Canadian experience, this time period directly
depends on validity of our work permits. The lock downs and layoffs have
negatively impacted our lives. It is also uncertain that when will this lock down be
over and when can we can go back to our Jobs or start working on full time Jobs.
Most of the International Students have got 3 years Post Graduate Work Permit
after completion of 2 years study in Canada and some of us have got 1-year work
permit after completion of 1-year study. As Foreign Workers, our work permits
are valid up to 1 or 2 years. Due to limited validity of work permits, we as
Temporary Residents have a specific and limited time frame to achieve the
Canadian experience which helps us to apply for Permanent Residency. Also we
are not able to appear for Language Proficiency Tests and/or get our Foreign
Credentials validated which is must to apply for Permanent Residency.
Due to current Pandemic there are layoffs and job losses which started since 15
March 2020. Most of us lost our jobs and still there is no further scope and 2
months have already passed away. Moreover, economy will take unpredictable
time to revive. It could be taking couple of more months for everything to get
back to normal.
Even though some businesses might be opening by end of May still it will take few
months for them to hire the employees so that the jobs are available for us.
Due to current scenario, we are in mental stress and uncertain about our future.
We are requesting to the Honorable Federal Minister Of Immigration and Honorable Prime Minister Justin Trudeau  to extend the validity of our work permits for at least 6 months from the date of expiry , So that we can cope up with the time lost due to COVID- 19.
