Canada Expands Interim Work Authority for International Graduates: Extending Opportunities

Canada has extended the validity period for interim work authorization letters issued to international graduates awaiting a decision on their work permit applications. These letters will now be valid for 180 days, up from the previous 120 days. Interim work authorization letters allow graduates to work full-time while awaiting their work permit decision, provided they meet specific criteria such as holding a valid study permit, completing their program of study, and meeting off-campus work permit requirements. These letters do not serve as travel documents, and if no decision is made within 180 days, applicants can request continued authorization to work from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) via a webform.
