Expedited Labour Market Opinion Pilot Project

Employers who want to hire foreign workers must apply to Service Canada for a labour market opinion (LMO) to assess whether hiring foreign workers would impact and affect Canadian jobs.

The Expedited LMO Pilot Project was originally initiated to make the application process to hire temporary foreign workers in certain occupations in Alberta and British Columbia much faster. Labour Market Opinion applications from employers who qualify to participate in the pilot will be processed within five days of Service Canada having received them when all the information requested is provided.

The new occupations that were added to the pilot project on January 14, 2008 are in bold. Contact Canada Welcomes You to see if you qualify under this Project.
