LMO (Labour Market Opinion)
It is the employer’s responsibility to obtain the LMO on the employee’s behalf and one must be obtained before the foreign worker may apply for a work permit. The purpose of the LMO is so th social departament can verify that the job offered to a foreign national could not have been filled by a Canadian Citizen.
This usually means that, amongst other things, the employer has gone to reasonable efforts to advertise the position to Candians before offering the job to a foreign national. The processing time for a standard LMO is 3 to 4 months.
