John Fernando will conduct the IRCC Study/Work/Post Grad Permit workshops.

These workshops will answer all your questions about:

- This workshop will also highlight the benefits of the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP), while you consider whether to continue your studies or apply to work in Canada.
