Collège LaSalle, an esteemed college in Montreal, Canada, has been added to the list of approved educational institutions eligible for the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) programme, indicating a significant achievement for its students. The decision of the Canadian government is a pleasant surprise for international students pursuing their ambitions at one of Canada’s top colleges.
After successfully completing their studies, the PGWP programme provides students with a unique opportunity to acquire Canadian work experience, clearing the way for them to obtain permanent residency in the country. Collège LaSalle has become a more attractive option for international students pursuing a world-class education and the opportunity to work and build a career in Canada with the introduction of this programme.
The PGWP programme permits eligible students to work in Canada for up to three years following graduation. To be eligible for the PGWP, students from around the world must have completed an eight-month or longer full-time programme at Collège LaSalle that leads to a degree, diploma, or certificate. Moreover, students must submit their work permit application within 180 days of obtaining their final grades.
Your programme that you will be considering should lead to the following:
- diplôme d’études professionnelles (DEP) (diploma of vocational studies (DVS) in English)
- attestation de spécialisation professionnelle (ASP) (attestation of vocational specialisation (AVS) in English)
- attestation d’études collégiales (AEC) (attestation of collegial studies (ACS) in English)
- diplôme d’études collégiales (DEC) (diploma of college studies (DCS) in English)
As the academic year comes to an end, Collège LaSalle stands out as a symbol of optimism for ambitious international students, providing them not only an excellent education but also an opportunity to prepare for a successful career in Canada. However, there are a limited number of courses available for international students starting September 1, 2023.
