Anderson College under fire for work permit claims

June 28, 2017

Anderson College, a private career college in Toronto, has come under fire for allegedly stating that graduates can apply for postgraduate work permits after completing their studies. Anderson Director Heather Yang says that the allegations are untrue, and that graduates are informed that “anything related to immigration matters, study permits or anything,” must go to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. CBC reports, however, that the college’s website formerly included the statement that “international students are automatically eligible to work while studying, and can possibly work after graduation with a permit.” The article examines some of the potential causes of the confusion, including a lack of clarity from the federal government around work permits.
