New LMIA Rules for Truck Driver Positions

New rules have been implemented for LMIAs for Truck Drivers. Minimum recruitment requirements for them will be waived until October 31, 2020. Companies can apply now without advertising for these. Also, for Provinces like Alberta, Saskatchewan who has MELT programs in place, it will not be possible to get a work permit for somebody from outside Canada. See the note below:


Important: For positions under National Occupational Classification (NOC) 7511 that are situated in a province that has a Mandatory Entry-Level Training requirement or equivalent, the foreign national must be in possession of this training certification at the time of work permit issuance.
