Hi Scott,
I spoke yesterday to my future employer. He said that there are no problems with our process(anything that is delaying), but he still doesn't have news. Yesterday it completed 35 weeks. Since December 4 it is under review by an Officer. Then, I am crossing my fingers.
And trying to ponder in other things, This LMO already stressed me terribly.
I think that some jobs demand more research of the HRSDC than other.

It is everything very slowly. For Skilled Worker the time is not smaller than 16 months. They already inform before beginning the process.

I hope helps you.

I called Service Canada Center in Ontario just now. The representative said the employee can not ask for the LMO status. Only the employer can do so. . She also told me the processing time in Ontario is 15-20 days.

Applied for LMO (Ontario) on 28th December, came back today, all lovely and positive..........

OH new employer gave us a bit of a scare though, he pointed out in his email that the LMO expired on the 28th February, we checked the document, yeah 28th February 2010. We were both mid panic as he does not fly over until 25th March, (2008 not 2010!).

All's good now, another hurdle over.

Hi Nisha

Nursing LMOs are taking about a week in Alberta at the moment, they get fast tracked so there should not be any long delay. Have you had you license approved by CARNA, this is necessary prior to applying for LMO and is taking about 3 months or even longer.

HTH

Hey everyone,

I'm a U.S. citizen, but have my own LMO data to contribute to the thread.

- employer filed for LMO in Vancouver, BC, on January 7th, 2008
- occupation is Graphic Designer (or some variant; it's an occupation under pressure)
- application was filed online, so immediate receipt
- employer received letter last week indicating backlog of 30-32 weeks for processing

What's worse is that, on my employers suggestion, I rented an apartment in Vancouver on a 1 year lease (technically took possession on February 1st). They had assured me everything would work out fine and that we'd have the LMO before the end of February.

So now I'm in limbo, waiting patiently (and the employer is trying to find other options to get me to Vancouver). Basically the big problem is this: I have tons of experience, great portfolio, management experience, etc., but no college degree (about 3 years of post-secondary education, but no certificate/degree/diploma/etc.).

Its been a long time since I last wrote and I am a little sad to see so many of us are still waiting for our lmo's, however i have to say a huge congratulations to purple80 the rest of your life awaits in snowy canada!!!

Our cunning plan of flying out for a huge holiday completely backfired when the father in law was diagnosed with terminal cancer and so we stayed and he died!! then two days later the bloke who was going to buy our house pulled out and for a while left us with the feeling it was not meant to be but I am NOT giving in so easily... we're back on the market and the brain is back in action.....we're going to get there just got to be patient and have faith and anyway who wants to be dropped into canada in the middle of a freezing winter, spring will be beautiful....so we applied for our LMO at the very beginning of september last year....in alberta....23 weeks and waiting with hope in our hearts and a grimace on our face..."tee hee" they said on the phone there currently doing the beginning of july!

Hello,

I am also going to Alberta to work like Graphic Designer (3D modeller/Animator). I am waiting for my LMO to 35 weeks and 4 days. At that time in that my employer applied, the delay was from 4 to 8 weeks.
You will need to have:

Faith,
Willpower,
Positive thought,

Don't worry about certificate. The professions in NOC 5241 are not regulated in Canada. In other words, if you have experience and some courses, already you qualify. Of course, certifications and courses help enough.

Good luck for you. That something happens for you to get your faster positive LMO!!

Hi everyone

My employer submitted LMO request for me on 14 Jan (Ontario). He had a fax back from HRSDC today requesting that a copy of my work permit be faxed to them so that they can continue processing. (I'm already working in the job on BUNAC). I'll get this faxed to them tomorrow.

Should I take this as good news that they didn't just give us a negative opininion?

Feeling so excited and nervous at the same time!
