Provincial or territorial federal or territorial foreign worker agreements or schedules of foreign workers in provincial or territorial federal immigration agreements contain provisions for the granting of work permits without the requirement for a labour market impact assessment (LMIA) for certain temporary jobs. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is responsible for evaluating and implementing decisions on proposed LMIA exemptions submitted by a province or region for significant investment projects, in accordance with the criteria set out in their foreign worker agreement or annex. While the LMIA exemption criteria for large investment projects are the norm in all foreign worker agreements and annexes, the specific exceptions of the LMIA are project-based and will therefore vary from one for to another. Note: Foreigners wishing to enter Canada under Section R204 (c) must meet all other requirements of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and the IRPR. In Express Entry, some LMIA vacancies are taken into account on bid points. For example, if you are working in Canada on a work permit without an LMIA issued under an international agreement or a federal-provincial territorial agreement (or in other cases), you do not need your current employer to obtain an LMIA for your job offer to be valid. There are two types of work permits for which a client could apply because of his or her provincial appointment. One of these is an Open Transitional Work Authorization (BOWP) which is available to applicants for permanent residence without employment restrictions. The other is an application for an employer-specific work permit under federal or territorial agreements covered by Section R204 (c) of the IRPR. To be eligible, a client must provide a copy of the appointment deed and a “provincial statement certifying that all factors necessary to obtain a work permit pursuant to clause R204 (c) of their agreement with Canada are completed, with the information provided by the professional and employer information.” The international mobility programme, designed for these employer-specific appointments, has another work permit. As noted above, the authorization for this authorization is R204 (c) under provincial or territorial federal agreements. This is also known by the LMIA T13 waiver code.
For more information on the process of permanent residency for provincial nominees, see op 7b, a provincially nominated manual. Note: If there are any apparent medical, criminal or safety problems, they must be dealt with before a work permit is issued. This Operational Bulletin (OB) comes into effect with immediate effect. In addition, it remains in effect for the duration of the Federal Worker Backlog Reduction Pilot (FSW). The authorities would provide a maximum of 1,500 province-specific open work permits (WPs). They would issue these work permits (WPs) under the Federal Backlog Reduction Pilot (FSW). As a result, qualified foreigners would have to apply for one of these 1,500 provincially specific open work permits (WPs). You can do this with immediate effect. The B.C. government will issue a letter of support to certified employees, in which it will ask the CIC to issue the 24-month work permit under section 204, point c of the T13 exemption code.
. Applicants must meet certain eligibility criteria. In order to qualify for these work permits(WPs), applicants must note that it is not necessary that the application for permanent residence from abroad was received by the IRCC for the issuance of the work permit, unless the appointment has expired. In this case, a copy of the confirmation letter confirming that the IRCC has received an application for permanent residence from the Provincial Name Program (PNP) should be accompanied by an application for a work permit. Officials should review the PNP application in the Global Case Management System (GCMS) to ensure that the appointment has not been withdrawn by the province and that no negative information is found in the files.
