    If the minimum validity (1 year) of PGWP is not sufficient for a student, then he or she can work on increasing the PGWP by choosing an add-on program subsequent to the primarily chosen program of study. If the consolidated learning hours of both programs are close to 2 years, then the student can attain a PGWP for up to 3 years respectively in return for both programs.

    Furthermore, according to the latest update, students enrolled in a master’s program lasting two years or less will now have the opportunity to work for three years. This aims to provide students with ample Canadian work experience, thereby enhancing their prospects for permanent residency.
