Another corresponding change was the removal of the requirement that international graduates have a valid study permit when applying for a PGWP.

If you complete your study program in less time than the normal length of the program, you may be eligible for a PGWP valid for the full length of your program. For example, if you complete a 1 year study program in 8 months, you may be able to get a PGWP valid for 1 year.
2. 网络远程课程 Distance learning
If distance learning makes up less than 50% of your study program, you may be eligible for a PGWP. The length of the PGWP would match the length of your program, including both in-class and distance courses. Any distance courses completed outside Canada won’t be included in the length of the PGWP.
If distance learning makes up more than 50% of your study program, you aren’t eligible for a PGWP.
Officers may issue 3‑year post-graduation work permits to individuals who complete a master’s or doctoral degree in Canada when the eligible DLI has confirmed in the written confirmation of program completion that the degree is 16 to 23 months in length and does not include regularly scheduled breaks.

Note: Each program of study must meet all PGWPP eligibility requirements and be at least 8 months in length.
