    Regarding duration– I found this on CIC site–hope it makes things clear

    If your program was more than 8 months but less than 2 years

    We may give you a PGWP that’s valid for up to the same length as your study program.

    For example, if you completed a 9-month program, we may give you a work permit for up to 9 months.

    If your program was 2 years or more

    We may give you a PGWP that’s valid for 3 years.

    If you completed more than 1 program

    You may be able to get a PGWP that combines the length of each program.

    Each of the programs you completed must be

    PGWP-eligible and

    at least 8 months in length

    You can’t get a PGWP if you already had one after completing an earlier program of study.

    If your passport expires before your PGWP should

    Make sure your passport is valid for the entire length of time you should be eligible for. If your passport expires earlier:

    we’ll only issue you a PGWP that’s valid until your passport expires

    we’ll tell you if you need to extend it to get the full validity

    You can only extend a PGWP if we tell you to. If this happens, you have to apply on paper to extend your PGWP so that it’ll be valid for the full length it should be.
