Default LMIA Edmonton Alberta timeline

Hi all,

I'm a hairdresser waiting for LMIA answer in Edmonton. The company has applied for multiple salons as there are quite a few of us being employed.
I was wondering if anyone has had a positive answer recently? If so how long did you wait and what kind of job?
I'm on week 5 now. I've read many conflicting reports on how quick and slow some applications have been.

TIA

It really varies, that's why you'll find such different timelines.

As a *very* rough guide, about 3-4 months.

HTH.

Thanks for the reply guys, it's just so frustrating. I'm lucky the company use consultants which constantly deal with LMIAs rather than doing it themselves. I've actually packed up and left UK and sitting it out at my mother in laws in Germany. My daughter can spend time with her before we fly off to Canada. I'm just getting fat on all the lovely food hehe. ;0))

Blimey, that's brave! Were you planning on doing that anyway?

Fingers crossed it's positive.

Yes, we are leaving England either way Canada is what we want but we will wait in Germany for however long it takes. If my hubby has to get a job here so be it.
The company just took on 50 stylists back in March from Ireland and now taking another 50. As I already have my approval letter from AIT I'm good to go they have applied for 4 locations so 1 is gonna come good. I could already be there if I wanted to go to Cochrane they had an LMO expiring end September. We wanted to wait for Edmonton.

I thought all blanket LMO's were scrapped when the new changes were introduced?

That was one already in place before new system which is why it had to be used by end of September.
