From 1st April new changes have been introduced to temporary overseas workers visa class of Canada. CIC and HRDC will introduce few major amendments in the ongoing skilled visa process impacting overseas workers as well as employers of Canada to make the skilled immigration program more effective for the nation.
Under ongoing temporary skilled worker program, Canadian employers are enabled to offer job to abroad workers only if adequate numbers of Canadian labors are unavailable. The employer has to apply to HRSDC for LMO approval in the process of hiring abroad employee. Labor Market Opinion is a document approving that the job offering to an abroad labor for a specific occupation will impact workers of Canada positively. Employers have to present evidences that they have implied reasonable efforts in offering this job to Canada citizen or PR holders prior to offering it to overseas workers. The employers have to provide working condition and salary that are parallel to Canadian workers standard in that region.
The temporary skilled worker needs to have an authentic employment offer along with an approved LMO document before applying for Canada work permit. It must be noted that work permits obtained under international agreements and Intra-Company work permits do not necessitate presenting an LMO document.
HRSDC and CIC will be responsible for formatting the following amendments in temporary skilled labor program to guarantee that abroad workers are better protected and facilitated whilst they are in Canada. These amendments will affect Labor Market Opinion based work permits as well as work permits which do not require LMO.
