    PWGP: Stop working when receiving letter of completion

    Hi! So I worked until I got the letter (I had to go to my school to get it). They put the date of me submitting my final thesis on the letter, which in my opinion was a mistake. i was told that this could potentially be an issue because I kept working until I had the letter of completion (as...

    Can You Work After Your Program But Before Letter of Completion?

    Never mind, my faculty updated my documents :) But this is still an interesting question for graduate students. One advisor said I worked illegalyl and should therefore check off "yes" when asked whether I have ever done any unauthorized work. However, based on the content that I posted, I did...

    Can You Work After Your Program But Before Letter of Completion?

    Thank you so much for your response! I have never seen it as the end of my degree/last requirement, but I assume it would be the submission of my final thesis. I always based my thinking on this: “Applicants must apply for a post-graduation work permit (PGWP) within 180 days of obtaining...

    Can You Work After Your Program But Before Letter of Completion?

    Hi everyone, I just found this. What can I do if my letter of completion states October 16 but I did not receive any written confirmation until November 2? It's a thesis program, and I am worried that I did something wrong. I stopped working yesterday when I received the written confirmation...

    PGWP REFUSAL w.r.t to Cerb is it true or rumor?

    Hi everyone, I also believe that this message is fake. However, I have been wondering whether I should pay back my 2 CERB payments that I received. Simply because we indicated when we received our visas that we will be able to fund our studies. Yes, I know that nobody was expecting a global...

    PGWP and Bank Statements

    Hi everyone, do I need to show any financial proof that I will be able to pay for my stay in Canada when applying for a PGWP? I didn't see anything online about it (but that sometimes doesn't mean that it's not better to submit it). Thanks so much!!

    CERB for international students

    What was the exact time frame for this? If you applied for 2 CERB payments, that means you weren't working (or making less than $1,000) for 6 continuous weeks?
