IRCC survey suggests changes for postgraduate work permit program


Nicholas Keung of the Toronto Star reports that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) appears to be considering changes to the rules of its post-graduation work permit program. Keung writes that the IRCC sent an eight-question survey to colleges and universities about proposed changes that would “align […] eligibility with labour market needs while reducing the overall volume of PGWP holders” and potentially improve labour market outcomes for international students. IRCC officials are also reportedly seeking feedback about permanent residence and provincial immigration selection programs for international graduates.
