The E-LMO Program is only available to B.C. and Alberta employers seeking LMOs to hire foreign nationals in one of the 33 occupations listed under the pilot project. Those occupations are viewed as being in short supply in those two provinces. The application process has been changed somewhat. Employers applying under the program are now required to submit evidence of recruitment efforts and must complete a new questionnaire when they apply. The new requirements will assist Service Canada in determining whether the employer has a legitimate need for temporary foreign workers.
