As of October 26, 2015 Citizenship and Immigration Canada has made updated changes impacting employers of provincial nominees.
The Government of Canada has introduced an Employer Portal.
The new service will incorporate the previous Offer of Employment to a Foreign National Exempt from a Labour Market Impact Assessment (IMM5808) form and payment of the $230 compliance fee per Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) exempt work permit.
The employer will be required to complete the profile and remit the fee BEFORE the candidate can apply for the work permit. This fee must be paid for by the employer and cannot be charged to the foreign worker.
More information on the changes is available online:
