Default LMO - British Columbia Timelines

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has some knowledge of how long LMO decisions are currently taking in B.C. I've just had a company submit one and my vocation is category A on the NOC. Not sure if that makes any difference?

Thanks

An A-LMO, or a normal one? Max 10 working days for the former, approx 12-16 weeks for the latter going on recent timescales.

HTH, good luck.

thanks for getting back so quickly. I was hoping to be eligible for a A-LMO, but my potential employer hasn't applied before so ruled that out. I was working on around 3 months, so that fits with what you're saying.

Does my vocational grade have any impact on how long it takes?

If you're expecting 3 months then that will probably be about right, although we have had some quicker ones on the forum recently so they do seem to have sped up a bit. But if you expect 3-4 months then you can be pleasantly surprised if it's quicker.

Your skill level makes no difference at all, the main thing is how much your employer has advertised the job and how they've documented why you should get it over any other applicants etc.

Good luck, hope it comes through positive soon.

My prospective employer in BC filed one for me in the first week of September 2012, I haven't heard anything yet but I understand it could take between 3-4 months at the mo. Will post when I hear from them.
Cheers

Does anyone know if my potential employer will get an acknowledgement for the LMO application. A reference number or something? Or is just apply and wait?
Thanks

They will be sent an acknowledgment with a reference number. It can take a few weeks to get that.

Hi Biggayowl,
A quick update on LMOs from BC. Got mine this morning. It was signed on the 15th of November. It has taken about 12 weeks to process.

Time to knock on the doors of CHC London for the TWP. With medicals, I guess that's going to be another 12 weeks.
PR application also still in the system since Aug 2010. Hopefully, another few months and all the waiting will pay off.
Good luck with yours.

cheers for letting me know Kirby and hope everything works out for you. So far I don't think my potential employer has even heard back with a reference / application number.

Bit confused about your comment... you've got your PR application in already since 2010?
I assumed the process would be more like;
Job offer,
LMO,
TWP,
then PR application,
???

PR application can be done from the UK, via several routes such as family sponsorship or FSW.

It's quite common for people to apply for PR then get fed up waiting and move to Canada on a TWP in the interim!

HTH.
