Upon Graduation

Introduction

Graduation is a time of transition for every student. But international students must think carefully about their next steps because their study permits expire shortly after graduation.

As you approach the end of your studies, you’ll be faced with an important question: Should I remain in Canada?

If you decide that you’d like to stay in Canada after you complete your program, you have a few options to consider. Three pathways to immigration are available to international students who decide to become permanent residents of Canada in the province of Ontario.

  • Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (OPNP)
  • Canadian Experience Class
  • Federal Skilled Worker Program
