Default All going wrong

After being told that "we are good to go, we are just sorting out your contract" we have had an email today saying that they have not even applied for the LMO yet.
Job offer was 21st October. I am devastated. We accepted an offer on our house yesterday, removals companies in to quote next wednesday and already selling some of our possessions.
They have said they may try intra company transfer now because this will be quickest route. Does anyone know if this is so?
It is a very large employer in Canada and I cant believe that they have just sat on their backsides for 2.5 months.
My OH is so disappointed. It is so frustrating when these matters are out of your hands.
Maybe this is a higher being telling us that its not meant to be!

Sorry to hear that things aren't moving as quickly as you'd like.

But if you go via an intra-company transfer then no LMO is required so that would make things much, much quicker as you could just apply for TWP at POE.

This Wiki article may help............http://britishexpats.com/wiki/Intra-...ransfer-Canada

Good luck, hope it's not too much longer.

Thanks for that Christmas,
At the moment it feels like 1 step forward and two steps back.
It wouldnt have been so bad if they had not let us believe that they had the LMO and everything was sorted.

At least if he's eligible for the intra-company transfer (has worked for them in UK for at least one year, fits one of the 3 skills categories etc) then you won't have the agonising wait for LMO that so many others have!

It's awful that they don't realise what limbo you're in here and make you wait without telling you anything!

Good luck with it all.

Once again Christmas, thanks for your sensible answer. He fits 2 categories so we should be ok. He is not an executive lol.
I was just feeling sorry for us and probably over reacted a little but we shall pick up and start again.
