Dear all,

I received my Post Graduation Work Permit in June 2008, and was not given the full three years as my passport was only valid up till April 2010. 

I plan to get my passport renewed in two weeks time. My question is what should I do in order to get my work permit extended? I looked at CIC website but didn't come across a section on renewal or extension of PG Work permit. Please advise.  

Thanks very much.

Nicodemus

PGWP cannot be renewed or extended. Try calling the CIC toll free # and see what they say but I'm almost certain it can't be extended or renewed.
Application sent May 13, 2010
Started processing July 22, 2010.
Decision made March 7, 2011
Landed April 13th 2011
The whole process took exactly 11 months!

That's what I thought when I looked up on the website. 

However, when I first applied for my PGWP, I was supposed to be given a 3 years permit (till 2011) but instead given till the expiry of my passport. When I had enquired about it at the time, they said I'll just have to extent it once I get my renewed passport. 

Anyone out there who has had similar experiences?

What is CIC toll free number?

Thanks Jamaisomal.

Well if they told you that then hopefully you will be able to extend it. The # is 1-888-242-2100.

CIC told you, extend your passport, then apply to extend your PGWP to the 3 years.
