Can I renew my post-graduation work permit?
If you had to renew your passport
You can extend your PGWP with your new passport only if
- you were eligible for a PGWP but
- you didn’t get the full length because your passport was going to expire
Include this information in a letter of explanation when you apply to extend your PGWP.
If you’re an Express Entry applicant
You may be able to apply for a bridging open work permit if
- you’re waiting for a decision on a permanent residence application under Express Entry
- your current work permit expires in 4 months or less
- you have valid status on your work permit
- you’re currently in Canada
