Over the past number of years Canada has moved toward an immigration system which rewards international students with the opportunity to turn their diplomas into full permanent resident status.  Once a foreign student has completed a qualifying educational degree the student is eligible for a post-graduate work permit.  Post-graduate work permits are open permits which allow students to work anywhere in Canada without hindrance like any other Canadian seeking employment in Canada.  Students choosing the right area of study and employment may qualify for PR status.
