How do I get a 3 year work permit in Canada?

How do I get a 3 year work permit in Canada?

The Post-Graduation Work Permit is a program that allows students who have graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution to obtain work experience. The permit has a duration of up to 3 years depending on the length of the program finished. How do you get a 3-year work permit in Canada? Technically, the longer your program of studies, the longer your post-graduate work permit will be. For instance, if you have completed a 3-year study program, then your PGWP will typically be available for 3 years. The PGWP is issued for a minimum of 8 months to a maximum of 3 years. The length of the PGWP will vary depending on: The breaks you take during your program Supporting documents that you provide Passport validity date Credit transfer for the program DLI institution eligibility for PGWP Distance learning (online or in-person learning) Programs with an overseas component Is 1-year post-graduation work permit enough for permanent residence? It might be enough, however, it might be harder to get a full year of skilled work experience with just 1 year of PGWP. It is recommended that you complete a program of studies of at least 2 years in order to get a 3-year work permit. It is a requirement for the permanent residence (PR) to work full time for a whole year in Canada. If possible, and PR is a priority, try to do a program of at least 2 years to secure a full-time year and the PR pathway that you are looking to achieve. What are the benefits of applying for a post-graduation work permit? There are many benefits for international students having a PGWP. It can help in many more ways than just giving the option to work full-time for the length of it. Some of those benefits are: 1. Work full-time International students are entitled to work up to 20 hours while studying. However, the PGWP offers you to work full-time even while the PGWP application is being processed. You have the option to work in one or more jobs at the same time and the number of hours you want. 2. Gain Canadian experience Students can gain valuable experience with a PGWP. It may help at the time of applying for permanent residence, build connections with people from different backgrounds, improve language proficiency, and gain more skills for other jobs. 3. Path for Canadian residency The PGWP is one of the bridging mechanisms to transition from a temporary residence to a permanent residency (PR). The PGWP is a good way for an international student interested in immigrating to Canada through the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Keep in mind that PGWP holder need to work for at least one year in any of the job groups 0 (zero), A, or B of the NOC system to be eligible to apply through the CEC category. If the job corresponds to other groups then you can apply through a different PR category. 4. Flexibility to choose a job The PGWP gives you the opportunity to work for any employer and in any occupation even if you do not have a job offer. You will even have the possibility to work in a field that is not directly related to the field of study that you completed. The PGWP also lets you apply to jobs anywhere in Canada and start or finish anytime you want within the eligible time of the permit. 5. Time to think about your future A great thing about the work permit is the fact that it lets you have more time to think about what you want to do with your future, whether it is going back home or applying for PR and staying in Canada. Whatever the decision is, you can take enough time to know what to do after graduation and after your PGWP is terminated. What is the National Occupational Classification (NOC) system and how does it work? The NOC is the national reference for occupations in Canada. It provides a classification structure for organizing and categorizing the range of occupational activities in Canada (jobs). It does this to collect, analyze, and disseminate the occupational data for labour market information and employment program administration. In brief, the government uses the NOC system to classify jobs. These jobs are classified based on the type of work an individual performs and the job duties. The categories that the NOC system has are: Skill type 0 (zero): management jobs Skill type A: professional jobs that tend to require a degree from a university Skill type B: technical jobs that tend to require a college diploma or training Skill type C: intermediate jobs that tend to require high school or specific training Skill type D: labour jobs that tend to give training The immigration programs used the NOC system to understand and review if a job meets the eligibility for such programs. The government considers skilled jobs those of skills type A, B or 0 (zero). To apply for the PR under the category of Express Entry (which includes Federal Skilled Worker, Canadian Experience Class, and Federal Skilled Program), the job you perform while doing the work permit needs to be skills type A, B or 0 (zero). However, if you find yourself in a job skills type C or D you can apply for PR under the category of Provincial Nominee or Atlantic Immigration Program.

CBIE International Student Survey 2021: What do international students think of Canada?

The CBIE stands for Canadian Bureau for International Education. They are a non-profit, non-governmental membership organization, in charge of studying, analyzing and reporting on the experience of international students in Canada since 1988. They review more than 67 institutions, gathering more than 40,000 international student responses. This article will talk about the main findings that the CBIE 2021 survey found about the international student’s experience in Canada, regarding topics like the PGWP, work, etc. What were the main findings of the CBIE International Student Survey 2021? The CBIE International Survey 2021 was open for 3 months and there was participation from 67 institutions and 41,512 students. It was important for institutions and decision-makers to understand more about international students; besides how to improve their experience and offer benefits that can help them and the future of Canada. Some of the significant findings were: Canada and its benefits International students cited Canada’s reputation as a safe, stable and tolerant country; and the educational system is a critical factor for them to choose Canada as their study destination. One important consideration from under 40% of the respondents was the opportunity to obtain permanent residence. Student experience The biggest challenges that students mentioned were arranging accommodation, transferring funds, and obtaining a study permit. Pandemic hurdles and travel requirements were mentioned. Experience with work Half of the students reported that they are working or worked, however, four in ten reported having difficulties with finding a job. The main reason for that is the lack of experience that those respondents had before or while in Canada. Post-graduation plans Around 43% of students reported that they plan to work for up to 3 years of their PGWP and then apply for the PR. Meanwhile, 18.8% of students indicated they are planning to work for up to 3 years of their PGWP and then return home. Finally, almost one in ten reported that they would look for work outside of Canada and their home country. Knowledge of Indigenous Peoples Under 85% of students reported gaining awareness about the history and culture of indigenous people throughout their studies. Around 21% of students reported gaining very little appreciation of Indigenous people’s history and culture. Where are the international students that answer the survey located? The students that answered the survey are located in different provinces within Canada, to provide a better idea observe the graphic below. What are the main reasons why international students chose Canada? There are many reasons according to CBIE International Student Survey Results 2021 for international students have chosen Canada over other study countries. The main reasons cited by students in 2021 are: Quality of life Canada is a top country when it comes to living standards, it is ranked the #1 most livable country in the world. The ranking was based on different criteria such as affordability, diversity of students, and opinion from graduates about the job market. Canada has a cost of living lower than many other countries, and also offers stability, safety and a respectful multicultural environment. Quality of education Canada is a world-recognized country for quality of education, from the lower level of studies to the highest. Degrees of any kind are accredited internationally, which makes it a more accessible and transferable place for students to come and go to different countries. Canadian society Canada is a very welcoming country for foreign students with a culture that embraces diversity. It also accepts people from different backgrounds, religions, beliefs, traditions, etc; which presents it as a non-discriminatory country and a tolerant society. Opportunities for permanent residence The government of Canada has been expanding the options for permanent residence to students. They are also opening more spots for internationals to manage to get permanent residence. Additionally, please look at campus news to check more about permanent residence on the Acsenda website. Career and work experience opportunities The rate for students to get a job after graduation is very high. Therefore, through the Post-Graduate Work Permit (PGWP) program that the Canadian government offers, students can work for a particular amount of time after they finish their studies, which gives them financial compensation and professional experience in the job world.

Can I get a work permit after studying at a private institution in Canada?

Can I get a work permit after studying in a private college in Canada?

Yes, you can get a work permit after studying at a private institution in Canada. However, there are specific requirements for international students to obtain a work permit for a private institution in Canada. Conditions include the post-secondary institution in question, the length of the program, the field of study, etc. What is a post-graduation work permit and how does it work? In Canada, a work permit received upon graduation is better known as a post-graduation work permit (PGWP). The PGWP is a program that allows students who have graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution to obtain work experience. It helps students to continue in Canada and work full-time after completing their program. The PGWP has a duration of up to 3 years depending on the length of the program. When are you eligible to apply? You have up to 180 days to apply after you have received your diploma, transcript or letter from your institution. Your study permit must be valid during this time as well in order to apply. Some of the requirements in order to be eligible to apply are: Have completed a study program of at least 8 months at a designated learning institution (DLIs) that leads to a degree, diploma, or certificate Have maintained full-time status as a student during each semester of your program Graduate from a public or private post-secondary institution that can award degrees under provincial law Keep in mind that there are some people that can be deemed ‘special cases‘ by the Canadian Government and may have exceptions depending on their situation. If you want more details on eligibility to apply, please go to the Canadian Government website. You can apply for a PGWP when your official letter of completion is ready by your institution, which will help to confirm that you meet all the program requirements and you are done with the entire program. Keep in mind that your letter of completion might be ready on different dates from your diploma, degree and graduation. Which private colleges allow you to obtain a work permit in Canada? Most post-secondary institutions listed on the DLI list allow you to apply for a PGWP after graduation. Nonetheless, keep in mind that not all designated learning institutions and not all programs of study make a student eligible for a PGWP. For that reason, it is important to check the DLIs list and confirm if the post-secondary institution you are looking for is eligible for the offer of a PGWP. Additionally, is important to note that Acsenda is on the DLI list and is eligible to offer a PGWP permit. How long is a post-graduation work permit valid for? The length of the PGWP varies depending on the length of your program of studies as mentioned above. But depending on the length you can know how long your work permit can last: When your program lasts less than 8 months then you are not eligible to apply for a PGWP If your program was at least 8 months but less than 2 years, the PGWP  is valid for 8 months When your program was 2 years or more then your PGWP is valid for 3 years If you want more information regarding any processes of the post-graduation work permit program, please visit the Canadian government website. Also, if you need more information regarding the PGWP in Acsenda, please contact us.

Acsenda featured in BGA’s ‘Business Impact’ magazine

Acsenda School of Management was featured in Business Graduates Association (BGA) Business Impact Magazine’s May – July 2022 edition. The magazine looks at how partnered business schools are attempting to make optimistic and beneficial contributions to society. What was featured in the BGA’s magazine? Acsenda’s very own President Dr. Neil Mort was featured in the article, answering an important question on how Acsenda School of Management is addressing the environmental impact. ‘For the past two terms, in conjunction with Drawdown BC, we have offered a joint micro-credential in environmental awareness, sustainability, and climate action. This is a 5-session program that seeks to provide meaningful opportunities for students to increase awareness regarding climate change, connect with their communities and develop initiatives that help to bring positive change’, he said.

Acsenda welcomes Ukrainian students to campus

Acsenda supports Ukrainian students

When the Ukrainian invasion happened, Acsenda reached out to American Concordia University Ukraine, located in Kyiv, and offered to help. To cope with this sudden disruption to their teachings, Acsenda agreed to accept students, so that they could continue to progress towards completion of their degree programs. Since early April, 48 Ukrainian students have enrolled in courses at Acsenda School of Management. Some students enrolled in already ongoing courses but most, due to the size of enrolments, were designated their own classes. Acsenda School of Management, with the support of EduCo, agreed to cover their tuition expenses. What are Ukrainian students’ thoughts about their experience with Acsenda? Some Ukrainian students decided to tell Acsenda a little about their experience and thoughts about the classes and the institution. One of the Ukrainian students, who requested to remain anonymous, said: ”Overall, I am satisfied, like it’s been over the top, personally… we [recently] studied screening, and next is interviewing, everything is clear and understandable. And all the materials are relevant and based on practices.” The students mentioned they enjoyed the different teaching styles of their professors, specifically the way that they are able to teach at such a high level but in their own unique ways. They mentioned that Canadian instructors tend to talk more openly about relevant issues and provide examples that help make the topics clearer. What do Ukrainian students think about Acsenda’s learning approach? One of the Ukrainian students mentioned that they enjoyed that the learning is “peer-based”. “There’s a lot of communication between students and teachers because even in Ukraine, sometimes there is not much communication with the professor, they just read the lecture, they finish the class and then you just answer questions based on what they asked so everything is basically prepared or something. Here there is more communication, we are discussing something and we are answering, you know, we are doing critical thinking all around.” They said that Acsenda faculty provide examples, often from personal experiences, which makes it easier for students to comprehend concepts. They mentioned that Acsenda’s instructors encourage students to participate, which helps them learn and understand the class even more.
