Effective January 2021, slight changes have been applied to the LMIA process. In the revised LMIA system, job positions are to be divided into just two categories:

  • High-wage positions: Jobs with salary equal or exceeding the median wage in the province where the job will be performed
  • Low-wage positions: Jobs with salary below the median

The application fee for LMIA requests is now $1000 per worker, an increase from the $275 per worker fee for LMOs. The average LMIA Processing Time by ESDC is 10 business day as of right now.
