Canada’s private career colleges want the Federal Government to issue Post-Graduate Work Permits (PGWP) to their international students. George Hood, the chair of the National Association of Career Colleges (NACC), said in an interview that there are not “enough Canadians to fill the demand for personal support workers but if [private colleges] could offer the work permits, we could bring in more students.” NACC argues that thousands of additional international students would study at private career colleges every year if the Government made these colleges PGWP-eligible.
