Application processing times for Labour Market Impact Assessment take longer than before

Service Canada has experienced unforeseen technical issues after updating the system to modernize and improve the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) processing.

As a result, applicants may experience longer processing times as well as longer waiting times for requests such as name additions or changes.

Applicants who have already submitted their requests are asked to not submit new requests to avoid duplication and further delays.

Service Canada strongly recommends applicants submit their applications online and is working hard to minimize the impact this has and resolve issues in a timely manner.
