Flagpoling No More: Canada Ends Post-Graduation Work Permit Flagpoling

On June 21, 2024, Canada made a significant policy change aimed at enhancing fairness for international graduates seeking to remain and work in the country. The Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced the cessation of the practice known as "flagpoling" for post-graduation work permits (PGWPs).

This change marks a pivotal step in ensuring a more equitable process for all applicants, particularly those who have chosen Canada as their destination for higher education and future career prospects.
