A Positive LMIA Decision in Record Time
Our firm successfully obtained a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) for our client who urgently required a housekeeper for her elderly parents’ residence. Our experienced business immigration lawyer conducted an initial assessment with the employer and identified the challenges that our client, the employer, faced in maintaining the cleanliness of the household. We advised and assisted the employer throughout the complex LMIA process, including the required recruitment efforts and preparing a comprehensive application package.
We filed the LMIA application with Service Canada in September 2023. However, due to technical glitches on the LMIA portal, they were unable to verify the payment of the processing fees and erroneously cancelled the application. Our legal team swiftly contacted Service Canada and clarified the situation. Despite this setback, the application was reopened into processing. Our client received a favourable LMIA decision without an interview in October 2023, within two weeks of the application being reopened. We are delighted with the expedited outcome and are pleased to have helped our client achieve her objective in a timely manner.
