What are you waiting for?Immigration Canada: Important improvement to work permits for international studentsInternational learners from across the world who would like to work in Canada will rejoice over the new changes in the Canadian work permits forforeign students announced last week by Diane Finley, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration. The changes to the Post-Graduation Work Visa areapplicable to international students who graduate from eligible programs at certain Canadian post-secondary institutions.“The Government of Canada wants more foreign students to choose Canada and we want to help them succeed,” said Immigration and CitizenshipMinister Finley.Effectively immediately, international students will now be able to obtain an open work permit under the Canadian Post-Graduation Work Permit Program.Basically, four new changes have been implemented, namely: 1. No restrictions on the type of employment; 2. No requirement for a job offer; 3. Duration of work permit has been extended to three years; 4. This is applicable to the entire Canada, and not just restricted to specific provinces.
Previously, the Immigration Department required international students in Canada to have an offer of employment before they could qualify for thePost-Graduation Work Visa. In addition to that, employment had to be related to their field of study, and, depending on the location, they were onlyallowed to work for one to two years. These new rules are a first for the Immigration Department, and are sure to make Canada even more attractivefor skilled individuals and students.“Open and longer work permits provide international students with more opportunities for Canadian work experience and skill development,” saidImmigration and Citizenship Minister Finley. “This will help make Canada a destination of choice and keep international students already studying inCanada.”The program’s new flexibility will benefit both graduates and employers, as it will help international students get important work experience whileresponding to Canada’s labour market needs. In the long run, Canada will benefit as the professional experience gained will help graduates meetimmigration requirements to stay permanently in Canada.“As we move toward the implementation of the Canadian Experience Class, these changes will help create a pool of individuals who, with workexperience, will find it easier to apply to immigrate to Canada,” said Minister Finley.“Their ability to retain international graduates with Canadian qualifications, work experience and familiarity with Canadian society, will help increasecompetitiveness and benefit Canada as a whole.”The goal of the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program has always been to allow international students who have graduated from an eligible programat a post-secondary institution to gain valuable Canadian work experience. According to preliminary 2007 data by Citizenship and Immigration, 63,673international students went to Canada that year, a 4.6% increase from the previous year.
