As per the new requirements, documents related to Temporary Foreign Worker Program will have to be provided in French language.
Submit LMO applications in French—Yes, that’s quite true. The new rules for Quebec immigration under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program will require applications for LMO(labor market opinion) to be submitted not in English language but in French.
This is due to Le ministére de l’Immigration et des Communautés culturelles announcement dated 11th October this year that applications for LMO will not get processed(for Temporary Foreign Worker Program) if they are submitted in English language and not French.
Quebec’s new rules will require applications for LMOs for Temporary Foreign Worker Program to be submitted in French and not in English as per the announcement dated 11th October this year by the federal government.
LMO necessary for bringing Temporary foreign workers in Canada-The fact is that an LMO is a compulsory requirement for bringing temporary foreign workers wanting to live and work in Canada. So, the new requirement of getting LMO applications in French is going to prove an obstacle for many.
And the decision administered jointly by the provincial government(Quebec government) and the federal government is in the knowledge of the Canadian government for not processing any applications for LMOs submitted in English language(applications must be submitted in French language due to recent changes) for Temporary foreign worker program.
New changed rules for Temporary Foreign Worker Program—Well, several changes were introduced to Temporary Foreign Worker Program(TFW) program way back in August this year.
Among the notable changes to TFW include introduction of a new fee for LMOs. $275 will be required to be paid as LMO processing fee following new rules. Speaking about the latest changes, Kevin Zemp, an immigration lawyer based in Calgary(from Global Immigration Solutions & Legal Services) said doing business in Quebec will become more difficult following such changes.
So, several foreign firms will have to face increased costs as well as long delays in getting temporary foreign workers wanting to work in Quebec, he maintained.
No wonder, it is being hoped by the immigration bar in Canada that some clarity will be offered by the federal government with regard to new rules from Quebec requiring documents in French for Temporary Foreign Worker Program.
