Canada has announced the launch of a new pilot immigration program


In order to address the issue of labor shortages, the Canadian government has announced the launch of the "Recognized Employer" pilot program in September.

👉🏻The pilot program will operate within the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) and aims to reduce administrative burdens for employers who have previously demonstrated compliance with TFWP requirements.

Under the REP, employers will have access to a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) valid for 36 months and will be able to utilize a streamlined process for applying for an LMIA.

🔻LMIA is a labor market test that Canadian employers must undergo to hire foreign workers under the TFWP. The purpose of LMIA is to prove that there are no domestic workers available in Canada to perform the job for which a foreign worker is being hired.

🔻To participate in the REP program, employers must have at least three positive LMIA results in the same occupation from the past five years, based on the list of occupations recognized as in-demand by the Canadian Occupational Projection System (COPS) data.

The implementation of REP will occur in two stages. Starting from September 2023, employers in the agricultural sector will be able to begin submitting applications. All other employers will be able to submit applications in January 2024.
