Im sorry but is this a go at me? These are your words correct.

Only the OP will know if he's eligible for a post grad work permit but I was confused as to why hadn't even been mentioned as an option for the OP to look into!

If he knows he is eligible for a PGWP as you suggest then why ask the question? Even if he is not sure am I or others expected to ask any poster to clarify a request for info in their post before an answer is given.
This type of post is posted by English 1st language and non English posters on a regular basis. It was discussed in a previous post about the way certain posts are worded and in the way members answer these posts as either helpful or not helpful.
We all get confused as to the way some requests for advice are asked for and in the vast majority of cases the correct info is given even if it takes a few posts to get to the heart of the matter.

Hello Amansinghrai,

It seems to me that what you are saying is that your current course does not allow you to obtain a post-graduate work permit. Given that VDI is a private college, the only wayto obtain a post-graduate work permit there is if you can complete a degree there, whcih does not seems feasible.

So one alternative seems to be to obtain a work permit via an LMO as suggested. Alternatively, since you are allowed to change educational institutions and have until April, 2014 to study, you could (assuming you have the funds) continue your studies at a publicly-funded educational institution. On graduating from that course, you would, assuming you have never held a postgraduate work permit in Canada before, be able to obtain one - but only for 1 year. That might however enable you to work for an employer and then got through the AINP.

Sorry it is not simpler, but that is all I can think of for you to do.

Well now ... if you are studying at a post-secondary institution authorized by the Province to confer degrees, and the program you are enrolled in there is a degree program, the CIC web-site which was referred to previously by Former Lancastrian indicates that you are eligible for a postgraduate work permit on graduating.

The OP is/was studying at CDI. Students at that school are not eligible for Off campus work permits, nor are they eligible for Post Graduate Work Permit. It is not

Eligible privately funded post-secondary institutions:

are located in a province or territory that has signed a memorandum of understanding with CIC
have signed an off-campus work agreement with their provincial or territorial government and
have approval from their provincial or territorial government to grant specific degrees.
