IRCC released an update on international student programs in public-private colleges

On March 22, 2024, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced that international graduates of public-private curriculum licensing programs will no longer be eligible for post-graduation work permits from May 15, 2024, instead of the earlier stated date, September 1, 2024. This means students commencing these programs on or after May 15, 2024, will not be eligible for these permits upon graduation. However, they can still apply for different types of work permits. For instance, graduates can apply for a work permit supported by an employer’s approved labour market impact assessment, particularly for occupations facing a labour shortage in Canada.
