Default Positive LMO Issued - Delighted! Now what?

Hey there good people. I've learnt on Friday that I've been given a positive LMO which I am now in possession of the copy. I have the job offer letter too. Now what do I need to do before turning up at immigration desk at the airport. I am in IT field. Thanks

Nothing. Just print out a copy of the LMO and job offer letter. Get on a plane land in Canada. Ask to see Immigration and present the documents and pay $150 for the work permit.

Plus take copies of your CV plus any relevant qualifications, especially if they are referred to in the NOC description, LMO or in the job offer.

Sight of these was required by BCSA (as expected) when I arrived on Saturday.

How do I find out what qualifications are referred to? Is it anywhere on the LMO doc?

The page of the LMO headed 'ANNEX' will list any qualifications required by the Employer under 'Job Information', if they provided such information to Service Canada.

If it lists anything, take a copy with you.

Hi, how long did your LMO take? Which province are you heading to?
