Immigration Issues/immigration to canada through the pgwp
I am in Canada studying at a private 2 yr college with
the purpose of applying for a pgwp, and eventually a PR
My school says that it is no longer offering the pgwp,
but I won't be changing providers.
What options do I have to obtain the PGWP after graduation?
