After graduating from a program that meets the necessary requirements, you can apply for a Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP), which may be issued for a duration equivalent to the length of your program or up to a maximum of three years.
It is important to begin the application process as soon as possible after receipt of your graduation documents, because processing times can be lengthy at times.
Graduation documents are typically available from Humber four to six weeks after the end of a semester. For example, students who complete their program in April should expect to receive graduation documents in early June.
Examples of these include your final transcript and confirmation of graduation letter. You have 180 days from the generation of these documents to apply.
