Permanent Residence in Canada: Challenges for International Students

Today we’ll tell you Why Permanent Residence is Not Guaranteed for International Students. So we highly suggest you to read the full blog and share.

Canada is a popular destination for international students, but securing permanent residence (PR) after graduation is not guaranteed. Despite graduating from a Designated Learning Institution (DLI), students face multiple hurdles, such as gaining work experience through a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) and meeting specific criteria for PR programs like the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) under Express Entry.

    Focus on high-demand sectors like healthcare, STEM, and trades.

Briefly Explore Provincial Nominee Programs

Graduates should also explore Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) which may have streams targeting international students directly. Programs like the Alberta Opportunity Stream and the British Columbia International Graduate category offer alternative pathways to PR.
