On August 2, 2022, the Government of Canada published new guidelines for foreign nationals with expired or expiring post-graduation work permits (PGWP) and those applying to the temporary resident to permanent resident (TR2PR) pathways. Since the suspension of Express Entry invitations to apply for the Federal High-Skilled streams has had an impact on PGWP holders, the Government introduced the temporary public policy to allow eligible PGWP applicants to apply for an open work permit within a 6-month intake period. Those who have already applied for TR2PR pathways may also obtain an open work permit.
