Actually, it's a condition of the program that you study in Alberta (or, in some cases, other parts of Canada), so this is good. You need a job offer now. I believe this was added to the criteria recently.

Oh okay. Can I have the newest edition of the province graduate students rules please? So only in Saskatchewan I wouldn't be needing a job offer to be able to apply for PR after completing my masters?

It really depends on the province. I'm sorry to say that, though it's on our list to update, we haven't done that yet. So you'll have to look at the individual websites.
It's safe to say, though, that in many provinces you now need a job offer in addition to schooling in the province to apply for PR.
However, the good news it that, upon graduating from a university anywhere in Canada, you are eligible for an "open" post-graduate work permit. "Open" means that you do not need a job offer.
So, basically, you get the post graduate work permit and, once you have a (skilled) job, you apply for PR through the PNP.
Make sense?

Hello again, I have a temporary residence visa in Canada till 2019. I just wanted to know the benefits I could get from having such Visa.Can I apply for Master's with this kind of visa?
I'm willing to do masters next year in a University(I'm waiting the acceptance result).
Also, as we discussed before, if I want to get the permanent residence (PR), I need to apply to a certain University in a certain Province, and then apply to a job in the same Province, and then I'll be eligible to Apply to PR, right? I can't do masters in alberta for example and then apply to work in ontario right?
Last question, what is open post-graduate work permit and how can I benefit from it?
Thank you so much, merry Christmas and happy New Year!

You can apply for a Master's program, but you will need a study permit. So the thing to do is to apply for the master's first. Then, once you have been accepted, apply for the study permit.

This depends on what you do after you graduate. There are two sets of programs you should be aware of:
  • Canadian Experience Class through Express Entry - you need to work at least one year in Canada as a "skilled worker" after you graduate, and you must otherwise qualify for EE. You could work anywhere in Canada, provided you work legally on a work permit.
  • A Provincial Nominee Program - there are 10 (I think) and they all have different rules. But most of them favour people who have already lived (including studied) in their province. This route is probably faster, but that's more of a question for a consultant.

If you attend a post-secondary program in Canada and you graduate from it, you can usually apply for an "open" work permit. Open just means you don't need a job offer and you can work for nearly anyone. It's available specifically to students who have studied here and graduated from their program.

Hope this helps.
