Hi,

My, hopefully, new employer has applied for LMO for me in Alberta around January this year. He is still waiting for news back. Is often that the applications get rejected for whatever reason? If it is an occupation that they are short of employees should there be any issues obtaining an LMO?
Thanks,
Dave.

Hi Dave
Waiting for the LMO feels like a life time... I remember it well!! Just hang on in there and hopefully you will hear soon. Your employer could try and contact someone at HRSDC just to confirm application was received ok, as I do know of someone on this forum who waited weeks and weeks and then it turned out they had not received application.
As ours was a positive LMO I am not 100% sure on all the possible reasons for LMO being rejected. I know that job has to have been advertised enough within Canada with no response as this shows you are not taking a job from a Canadian. Salary also has to be competetive, ie same as what a canadian would be paid.
Our LMO took about 13 weeks, so when you hear of others getting theirs in just a couple of weeks you start to panic!

Goodluck

last week, I called the Service Canada in Edmonton to follow-up our LMO Application, but the call center reps did not give me any information, they will only disclose information to my employer only. I already informed my employer about this but he's on vacation and will be back this week.

I think you should tell your employer to call the Service Canada to follow-up your application.

Thanks Sarah/Erick

I emailed my employer the other day. He said he will try and contact HRSDC this week. Hopefully we might get some positive news!

Sarahad is right, we just have to wait and pray hard.

Andrew is kinda lucky that the officer called them to increase the salaray, if you've read the story of pete66 about his LMO, Service Canada denied his LMO application because of salary but eventually issued a positive LMO because SErvice Canada made a mistake.

With my application, I've researched and everything seems to be fine from salary to advertisement (my occupation is listed under Occupation Under Pressure in Alberta so advertisement is only 7days.)

Oh gleech - your story is frightening me. Company is about to apply for an LMO in an occupation under pressure in Alberta and I was under the impression it would take 1-3 weeks! How misguided am I?

Re: HRSDC LMO Timeline
 
sorry gryphea, i dont intend to freighten you, well my LMO application is already 6weeks this coming friday. I think Alberta has the longest processing time for LMO. I'll update this thread if there is something new about my Application.
