There are a number of options you have to stay in Canada after you graduate.
There are some streams that just require a credential, such as a master’s or PhD, but having Canadian work experience or a job offer gives you added advantage.

After you graduate, you may have the option to get a Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP), which will allow you to work anywhere in Canada for up to three years. You can apply for immigration from in Canada anytime before your PGWP expires, but even if it does expire while you are waiting on a decision for your application, you may be able to stay in Canada on a Bridging Open Work Permit.

Although there are a number of immigration pathways at your disposal, the best immigration program for you will depend on a number of factors like;
📌 Where you are located in Canada;
📌 Where you intend to live in Canada;
📌 Your highest education credential;
📌 Work experience you have;
📌Official language proficiency;
📌 How much you are willing to pay in application fees etc.
