I studied for a year (3 semesters) and my passport expires in June 2022 so i guess that’s why they gave me a year an half
Yes, the same thing happened to me. They gave me a work permit for 1.5 years and even though I was eligible for 3 years. They added a note to my work permit that I can apply for an extension after my passport renewal.

I do remember you had issues with your passport expiring right?

Hi everyone.
I got approved 3y pgwp today.
It took them only 10 days.
I took 2 semesters off because my passport expired and I was off status and almost everyone told me I have little to no chance of getting approved. I submitted a LOE with my application and they approved it.
Thanks everyone for your help

Congrats! Great to know that they do give some consideration when the circumstances are explained with an LOE.

Hi everyone,
I received my PGWP last month valid until mid 2022 as that is when my passport expires. I have eTA in my passport, which I got when I got my study permit in 2018, valid until the end of 2021. I hope as I already have a valid eTA, I do not have to renew it or anything for travel purpose.

Relevant links and information would be appreciated.

Thanks!

i have a question, When somebody apply for pgwp and have job in NOC O,A & B, can spouse apply for his open work permit as well as spouse is already in Canada during her studies time.. and Can they both apply together in same form..
IF not, then can spouse work while he is waiting for prinicipal applicant's visa approval.??

Hello everyone! My pgwp was aproved today for three years. My eligibility started yesterday, I checked today and saw it has been approved even though I didn't recieve any email.

Applied: Dec 25
Approval: Jan 12

I applied in Toronto with unofficial transcript and LOE.
Hey, when you submitted on Dec 25, did you get the submission confirmation in your account? I submitted on the same day with you with official papers issued by the university. Nothing has happened just yet. Even the confirmation was not generated.
