Increase in Labour Market Opinion (LMO) Processing Times

The Service Canada LMO processing times have increased significantly over the past few months.  They have gone from six week processing time (experienced last summer 2011) to over twelve weeks.  This means that the process to secure a LMO must start well in advance of when you want the worker to start his or her employment with your company.   Please contact Paul Girodo to discuss your work permit and immigration strategy.
