从 2022 年 4 月 4 日开始，劳动力市场影响评估 (LMIA) 可用于支持临时外国工人 (TFW) 向加拿大移民、难民和公民部 (IRCC) 申请工作许可，最长期限为 18 个月。具体的条件请看官网。
Beginning on April 4, 2022 and until further notice, a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is valid to support a temporary foreign worker’s (TFW) work permit application to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for a maximum period of 18 months after it is issued. The LMIA expiry date identifies the period of time during which:
employers must notify the TFW that the LMIA was approved.
employers must send the positive LMIA letter to the TFW.
TFWs must apply for a work permit at IRCC.
employers who do not provide the names of the TFWs when applying for an LMIA, must continue to try and recruit Canadians and permanent residents until they select a TFW.
If this does not occur within the period of time identified (before the expiry date), the LMIA is no longer valid and employers must submit a new LMIA application if they still wish to hire a TFW.
As of April 4, 2022, employers may request an LMIA validity extension up to 18 months if:
the previously issued positive LMIA has a validity period of 6 or 9 months; and
the LMIA is valid on the day the extension request is received by Service Canada
Exception for SAWP: LMIAs approved for the 2022 season will be valid until December 15, 2022.
