  • A Labour Market Opinion (LMO) is an authorization that a Canadian employer has to obtain from Service Canada if he/she wants to offer a job to a foreigner.


  • The employer has to demonstrate that he/she has recruited across Canada and has been unable to find a qualified Canadian to do the job.


  • In most cases, the employer has to have advertised the job across Canada for at least two weeks in the last three months.


  • The LMO application process typically takes 12-16 weeks.


  • Once the prospective employer has obtained an LMO, the prospective employee can apply for a temporary work permit (TWP).
