CANADA – Additional Details on the International Mobility Program

As a follow up to our alert last week about the impending changes to the processing of Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) exempt work permits, please find the below process announced by the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) on February 18. Please note the new process:

  • Submit payment of the additional fee of CAD$230 electronically on the CIC website;
  • Receive an electronic receipt following payment of the additional fee;
  • Complete the Offer of Employment to a Foreign National Exempt from a Labour Market Assessment (LMIA) form (IMM 5802) and then select “Submit”; and
  • Be sure to provide the completed IMM 5802 form to the employee, as it is required for the work permit application.

For more detailed information on the International Mobility Program, please visit the CIC’s site.
