Refusal to process Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)- Caregiver

Officers must not process applications for new LMIA-required work permits made by foreign nationals under Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) if all of the following criteria apply:

  • The intended occupation is in National Occupational Classification (NOC) 4411 (excluding foster parents) or 4412 (excluding housekeepers).

  • The applicant is outside Canada.

  • The applicant is making an initial work permit application (that is, they do not currently hold a valid work permit).

  • The applicant is destined to a job location outside Quebec.

  • The accompanying LMIA application has been received by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) on or after June 18, 2019.

Applicants who do not meet the above criteria, which, in general, includes in-Canada applicants, are not subject to the refusal to process. They can obtain a work permit with a valid LMIA under the TFWP on or after June 18, 2019.
