Immigration Minister is working on a solution to help those with expiring PGWPs

On February 6, 2023, Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), confessed that he has not yet found a perfect solution for the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) extension policy; however, he is actively seeking and working on one. International students whose post-graduate work permits (PGWPs) are expiring or have already expired are stuck in limbo, with no news on extensions or a dedicated Canadian Experience Class (CEC) draw yet. Though it is expected that we will witness a CEC exclusive draw within the next few weeks, the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cut-off remains much higher than pre-pandemic standards. Thus, they must either depart from Canada shortly after their work permit statuses expire or choose alternate methods to extend their stay legally.
