Some PGWP applicants received their new work permits with errors

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued some Post Graduation Work Permits (PGWP) extension applicants new work permits with incorrect expiry dates. In mid-April 2023, an increasing number of PGWP Extension applicants reported obtaining new PGWP extensions with an expiration date 18 months from the IRCC approval date rather than the PGWP’s original expiration date. IRCC experienced the same technical glitch when it tried to fasten processing post-pandemic visitor records and extensions. As a result, work permit applicants were being issued visitor visas, while visa applicants received work permits.
