LMIA, how can I apply? Part 1
LMIA, I know. Let's sign up. <1> Among the many people who are thinking of immigrating to Canada, I will first look at how to immigrate with a work visa through LMIA. A lot of people are having trouble applying for LMIA without knowing the proper procedures or methods. Today, I'll explain what LMIA is and how we can get it. Firstly, in order to hire foreigners, an employer named LMIA must obtain permission from Service Canada (Labor Administration) and the approval process of the Labor Office is easily called LMIA. In principle, all jobs in any country will be prioritized by their citizens, Canadian citizens or permanent residents, and only foreign workers will be allowed to work in jobs that their citizens do not want or cannot fill with their own people. And the lMIA is being hosted by two agencies: the employer and the labor office, not the foreign applicant. The screening criteria are the severity of the labor shortage and the approval rate depends on how the application or interview appeals to it. Phase 1 to support LMIA of foreign workers. Find an employer When looking for an employer or position at this stage, the applicant should look for an employer or position that is closely related to the field of experience or major he or she has worked in the past. In short, if the above employer's position in the field and the applicant's career or major are not relevant, the job applicant's position will ask why he or she should be brought abroad. At least one required requirement must be matched according to the position of the appropriate career or academic background or certificate acquisition. Phase 2 with a position where foreign workers will work. a four-week run of advertising The reason why we need to run the ads for four weeks is that before we hire a foreign worker, employers must try to hire their own citizens first. Advertisements should be increased by at least four weeks in order to prove how much effort was made to recruit Canadians during the LMIA audit. LMIA recruitment ads must meet very challenging conditions, unlike regular job openings. ▲Using a government website called Job Bank Use a timestamp called ▲Job Match ▲Underreleased Group, i.e. advertising at least two websites targeting aboriginal, new immigrants, youth, and disabled people If you cannot find your own Cannedians who are fit for your job despite more than four weeks of advertising, if you have reviewed other applicants' resumes and found a candidate you like, apply to the Labor Office, the first step of legalizing a foreigner's visa. Phase 3 When applying for LMIA, various company documents and Receive $1,000 for LMIA Government The $1,000 receipt fee must be paid by the employer because the employer is seeking LMIA approval from the Labor Office to hire an employee. Step 4 Service Canada (Labor Office) Conducting the president's telephone interview. If you are randomly two to three weeks slow after applying, the Labor Office will call your employer to request an interview within six months. This interview will determine if LMIA is approved. Step 5 within a week of the interview LMIA Acknowledgement Results Notification If LMIA has been approved through the above procedure, a foreign applicant will now apply for CIC and Work Permit with the Positive LMIA. Basic Qualification Criteria for LMIA Applications In order to apply for LMIA, there are basic conditions for the company and the positions it supports, such as large employment positions, working hours, and minimum wages. ∘ Employment positions ▲NOC 0, A, B, C and D: NOC Code is short for National Occupational Classification and is easy to understand. NOC Cordon Szm is classified as either skilled or unskilled and is divided into five occupational groups by Skill Level. □Skill Type 0 (Zero): Manager-level job: Management career required (Mine manager, Restaurant manager, etc.) ∘ Skill Type A: Professional occupations: usually requiring a four-year or higher education (doctors, dentists, architects, etc.) ∘ Skill Type B: Proficiency/technical occupation: usually requiring 2-3 years of college or career (cookers, infant teachers, nursing assistants, office assistants, etc.) □Skill Type C/D: Unskilled Jobs: Possible without Training & Career (Cleaners, Server, Barista, Housework, etc.) □It is very important to check the NOC code of your job precisely because different levels of experience, academic background, credentials, and English scores are applied differently. Usually, the process of permanent residency is Skill Level B or higher, so you must check the level of your job code. □Full-time full-time:The employment contract must state that you will work at least 30 to 40 hours a week. Canadian Labor Law requires at least 30 hours of work a week to be full-time full-time and is not subject to LMIA applications unless full-time. □Median Wage:Median Wage is an hourly median salary based on the position offered by the company in accordance with the company's location, Province and City. If the offer does not meet the salary of Median Wage or higher, the application cannot satisfy the basic conditions of the LMIA application. Employers preparing for LMIA and those receiving LMIA support through job openings will be encouraged to understand exactly what is going on with LMIA and to check the time required and the documents required to be provided and to proceed with LMIA preparation.

6 main contents of the interview with the Canadian Immigration Minister.
Recently, Sean Fraser, the current Canadian immigration minister, appeared on Prime Asia TV, an Indian broadcasting TV program in Canada, making headlines for having a Q&A session with Prime Asia TV representative on immigration to Canada. A total of six questions and answers on this day showed the current direction of immigration by the Minister of Immigration. The first started with a question about the 2022 immigration goal. The number of immigration targets for 2022 in the known 2023 plan to accommodate immigration is 411,000, but we have already asked if the selection of immigrants this year has been completed due to the 500,000 pending permanent residency applications. In response, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser continued to answer, mentioning that the current situation is a temporary problem caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, more than 400,000 new permanent residents were settled in Canada, and many permanent residency applications are still received, so the Canadian Immigration Bureau has a two-year application, but it does not mean that IRCC does not consider new immigration applications. Second, there was a question about whether Express Entry's CEC selection had not been made since September 2021, and FSW's applicants had no choice but to leave Canada or if IRCC was preparing a special program for those people. Minister of Immigration Sean Fraser did not comment on whether or not to implement a new program to extend Work Permit due to the impact of the issue. However, current international students, who are likely to become new immigrants in Canada in the future, are very interested in how to apply for permanent residency through their studies. And regarding the FSW program and the applicants waiting for selection, he said he did not make a final decision on what to do. However, he did not mention the exact schedule, but it is temporary and will be re-implemented once various problems are resolved. The third was a question about the Express Entry program. The host said that the FSW application mentioned in the IRCC internal memo may take up to three years, and asked what Minister Sean Fraser thought about this, saying he thought the Express Entry program might have a question mark on its intention. In response to the question, the government said it will continue to select Express Entry for PNP applicants and refuted that not everyone has to wait three years because some of the applicants who applied for FSW have applied for permanent residency through the TR to PR Pathway program last year. He also replied that he would increase the number of new immigrants arriving in Canada as temporary and permanent residents and make it easier for temporary residents to obtain permanent residency in the long run. The fourth question was how Canada will solve the problem of a high delay in Work Permit processing despite a large shortage of skilled and unskilled workers due to the current Covid 19 situation. In response, Minister of Immigration Sean Fraser acknowledged that Canada's economy is currently facing a labor shortage, adding that 100% of Canada's labor force is currently growing through immigration. He also noted that Canada's population growth rate is not growing fast enough to replace the aging population in the workforce. The current delay in the process period is one of the five goals targeted by the Immigration Department to improve first, showing its willingness to invest $85 million in Canadian budget to improve it. The fifth question was whether there was a plan to create a special program to call these talents overseas, as I realized that Canada's healthcare workers were lacking during the pandemic. Minister of Immigration Sean Fraser replied that the current medical-related part is really important, saying that in the past, there were 6 to 7 medical workers per elderly person, but now there are 2 to 3 people, and the labor shortage problem will continue to grow. Therefore, he said he plans to allow more foreign medical workers to come to Canada and that he is currently prioritizing the processing of foreign medical workers that began during the pandemic. Another option is to improve foreign qualification in cooperation with the state government. The last sixth question is the Parent and Grandparent Program (PGP). In the process of selecting parent and grandparent programs, there were various problems with random lottery or application on a first-come, first-served basis, and I asked what they thought about it and what was next. Minister of Immigration Sean Fraser said that 200,000 applicants currently apply for 10,000 positions a year as a Canadian parent and grandparent program, and in 2020 and 2021, the program was held in a random lottery system, and some critics said it was unfair to those who had been waiting in the pool for years. However, Minister Fraser noted that it does not work for everyone, but the main reason is to put everyone on an equal footing. So we looked at the six main interviews. Through this interview, it was a good opportunity to know a little bit about what areas the immigration office is focusing on starting this year. Although it varies depending on the program to obtain permanent residency, most English scores are included, so I recommend taking the English test in advance before an official announcement is made.
Canada Immigration Plan for 2024
The 2022-2024 Immigration Levels Plan, or a new Canadian immigration plan, was announced through the Canadian government site at around 1:30 p.m. Vancouver time on Monday, February 14. Canadian immigration plans are usually announced on November 1st every year, but the 2022-2024 Canadian immigration plan was announced on February 14th last week after a new government cabinet was formed due to the Canadian general election in September last year. As a result, Canada's immigration target continues to increase until 2024. It was confirmed that the target number was 431,645 in 2022, 447,055 in 2023, and 451,000 in 2024, compared to the previously planned 2021-2023 immigration target. Then let's take a closer look at a total of four items: Economic, Family, Refugees, and in which of the other sectors there were numerical changes. First of all, the economic economy sector occupies the largest proportion of immigration targets among the four categories. If you look at the table, there are Federal High Skilled items that are related to Express Entry CEC, FSW, and FST. In the 2021-2023 immigration plan, the target was 110,500 in 2022 and 113,750 in 2023, but this announcement seems to have decreased compared to the previous target in 2022 and 2023. This seems to be due to the items added to the announcement of the plan, Federal Economic Public Policies. The item seems to have been affected by last year's TR to PR, that is, the Pilot Pathway program, with the addition of the number of people. However, from 2024, it is confirmed that the target number is 111,500, returning to the previous level. For reference, the TR to PR Pathway program was implemented in 2021 and aimed to give permanent residency to a total of 90,000 people with 20,000 healthcare, 30,000 non-medical jobs, and 40,000 international students, with 7,155 applicants confirmed to have completed healthcare, 30,000 non-medical jobs and 40,000 international students. Accordingly, the Canadian Immigration Service is expected to review and process all applications by 2023. The following is the Federal Business category, which means that the target number of start-up Visa Program and the Self-employed Persons Program remains unchanged. If you look at the Economic Pilots category, you can see that the Economic Mobility Pathways Project program, which was not planned for 2021-2023, has been added, slightly higher than the previous 2021-2023 immigration target. And after last year's Pilot implementation, it has been confirmed that the target number of Atlantic immigration programs officially adopted this year, or AIP, is the same. The last part we will look at is the state PNP target number. Although it did not rise significantly as much as it decreased in Express Entry, the 2022-2024 immigration plan raised the target number from 81,500 to 83,500 in 2022 and the target number from 83,000 to 86,000 in 2023. The second is the Family category. The spouse and child invitation program was identified as the same target as the 2021-2023 immigration plan, but the target number of parent and grandparent invitation programs was slightly raised, from 23,500 to 25,000 in 2022 and 28,500 from 23,500 to 2023. And in 2024, it was confirmed that the target number continued to increase to 32,000. Next is the refugee program category. As Liberal Prime Minister Trudeau promised, the target number was raised the most in the 2022-2024 immigration plan. The 2022 target increased by 16,045 from 60,500 to 76,545, and the 2023 target increased by 13,055 from 61,000 to 74,055. In the last (Humanitarian and Other) sector, the target number was also raised, from 5,500 to 8,250 in 2022 and from 6,000 to 10,500 in 2023. Like this, we looked at the 2022-2024 immigration plan together. Express Entry's CEC, FSW, and FST starting numbers are expected to decrease from last year and increase their starting scores. However, as Immigration Minister Sean Fraser mentioned, other immigration programs seem to continue normally, and the number of targets reduced, especially in the economic sector, has increased in terms of refugees, family associations, and humanitarian immigration acceptance.
