Employers should pay careful attention to new IMP rules

Employers using foreign workers need to be aware of updated instructions to the new rules in Canada’s International Mobility Program, says Toronto immigration lawyer Robin Seligman.

“Employers now have to create their own portal,” says Seligman, principal of Seligman Professional Corporation. “It would be of assistance to have proper representation because it’s a new process.”

As of Oct. 26, employers need to use the employer portal to submit their Offer of Employment to a Foreign National Exempt from the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) form, replacing the email submission method. The online portal process also allows employers under the International Mobility Program (IMP) to pay the necessary compliance fee.
