Queen's University

Obtaining a subsequent LMO

 Did you obtain your initial work permit with an HRSDC confirmation letter (Labour Market Opinion, LMO)?

If so, you will need a new LMO before you can renew your work permit.

The LMO application process has to be initiated by Queen's. It usually takes about 2 weeks to complete, submit and receive a decision from HRSDC (Service Canada). These timelines can change unexpectedly.

HRSDC processing officers usually ask if the applicant has made application for Permanent Resident status before issuing a positive  second LMO.

 If you have not already applied for Permanent Resident status, HRSDC may require the University to re-advertise the position you are holding to ensure that there are no qualifying Canadian or Permanent Resident applicants.

To start the process of a second LMO or discuss your situation, please contact Monica Stewart , Faculty Recruitment and Support Program.
