Default Quick LMIA question

Hi folks,

Just a quick and easy one for you. I am eligible to apply for PR under FSWP once I have completed a year at my current job (skill level B). I'm currently on an IEC visa. My employers are happy to complete an LMIA, and drop the $1000 if they need to. However, is it true that they only need to pay the $1000 if they need to bring me on as a temporary worker? Since the IEC covers me until May next year, I won't need them to apply for the temporary foreign worker portion. Does this also mean that there won't be a processing fee for the LMIA?

Hopefully that makes sense! Cheers.

I *think* if they are just doing an LMIA in support of a PR application and not to actually use to grant a work permit they don't have to pay the fee, but I don't know that for certain. Hopefully someone else will confirm one way or the other.

Yes, employers can apply for an LMIA to support a Permanent Residence application only, in which case there is no processing fee.

Just a note that with a years skilled experience in Canada you may also qualify under CEC as well as FSW. You may be invited via 1 of the 2. IF its CEC the rules regarding proof of funds are different.
