Well there are guides on what the employer should do to search for Canadians to work in the job. The recommended approach is to advertise the job on the canadian government's job website for at least 2 weeks (I can't remember the URL off hand... sorry). The employer can happily throw all the resumes they get from other people in the bin if they wish, but this satisfies the LMO requirement.

Not quite, after advertising on the job bank for 2 weeks, they have to convince HRSDC why Canadians/PRs who applied for the job were not qualified.

Not a chance. An employer has to sign a legal declaration that they have tried and failed to hire Canadians or PRs and either not had any applicants or that those received were not suitable. Employers would be wise to keep all the evidence of having done this as well as records of interviews.

Lewmano is an unknown quantity at this point

so if the LMO candidate in question is a great employee and the firm likes them, realistically, there probably is a canadian somewhere in the marketplace who could fill the role. If the company really wants the candidate in the job, how difficult is it to make a good case for it?

like is it really a daunting task to ask an employer to do this for you?
