    IRCC letter received after submitting post graduation work permit application (WP-EXT for PGWP)

    Yeah, my uni rep actually said that people are approved despite the unauthorized work. My worry here is that the person said I can't work until a decision is made on my pgwp (despite the IRCC letter). The phrase ""they work no more than 20 hours per week during a regular academic session " seems...

    Applying for post graduation work permit

    Thanks @ captainarabiia. By the way, in relation to my previous messages regarding unauthorized work, I got a letter after submitting my application that I can work full time till Aug/pending the time my application is approved.

    Applying for post graduation work permit

    Thanks again @ OPS! By the way, I was wondering if previous rejection would affect my pgwp. We (my family) once applied for my PR (secondary applicant) and was returned as incomplete. The 2nd time, it was rejected - CIC said the NOC doesn't match the job title. We have applied the third time...

    Applying for post graduation work permit

    Thanks. Yes, my school put it in the FAQ for the pgwp application form that filling the other part of the form under employment is not compulsory. So I just indicate when I start my TA work (FROM) , title and location BUT the TO part is optional. On the Feb 2 date, that's the date I got email...

    Applying for post graduation work permit

    Thanks again @OPS. The lawyer said I should put the date I received my completion letter on the form and with that I can say no to 'unauthorized work.' He told me I am not lying by doing that. I like integrity and have decided before this (based on the advice from my uni) that I'll mention the...

    Yes, you can. I did work for a US based company as an international student in Canada. This was related to my phd research. Please consult your international student office for proper guidance as I remember I had to confirm some things then to ensure I was doing the right thing. I think it has...
