As of , the Temporary Foreign Worker Program is introducing new labour market opinion (LMO) application forms. As a result, employers submitting an application to hire foreign workers, on or after this date, will need to ensure that they use these new forms.
Old application forms received with a postmark dated , or after will not be processed. Program staff will contact the employer or third-party representative to request that the NEW LMO application form be completed and re-submitted.
In addition, employers using the Temporary Foreign Worker Web Service should be aware that the online system will not be available from until mid-January 2014 while changes are being implemented. Employers wishing to apply for an LMO during this time period will still be able to do so, using the paper application forms.
