Only if you have a job on the list of 29, or get a Skilled job offer approved by HRSDC.

As I pointed out in your thread the other day, Category 3 (applying for PR after a year of studying/working in Canada) doesn't exist any longer so unfortunately a Study Permit doesn't lead to PR as easily as it once did.

Look at Canada Experience Class

be either:

* a temporary foreign worker with at least two years of full-time (or equivalent) skilled work experience in Canada, or
* a foreign graduate from a Canadian post-secondary institution with at least one year of full-time (or equivalent) skilled work experience in Canada
