Guys - Look at this:

http://www.thestar.com/news/investigations/immigration/article/1123302--foreign-workers-face-being-sent-home-over-work-permit-snarl

"Thousands of temporary foreign workers are at risk of losing their permission to work in Canada and being sent home ironically, just as Ottawa is fast-tracking work permit processing.

Legal experts blame the chaos on two government departments being badly out of sync in processing the documents required to get a temporary work permit."

Hi all,

I am awaiting my 2nd LMO - the first took 12 weeks and 5 days, but after I'd sold my business here in the UK and got flights to Canada the total 'barsteward' of an employer told me there was no job for me!! Fortunately I found another one, but of course the beeping LMOs can't be transferred, so I've gotta wait for #2.

Anyway, sent off the application 1st December. Employer rang service canada on 16th Jan, and was told it was about 11 weeks and we could expect to hear on 24th Feb. (by the way this is for Saskatchewan).

However, today they got a letter asking for all sorts of information:
business contracts for goods and services,
provincial workers compensation clearance letter,
all canada revenue agency income documents,
lawyer attestation....

Has anyone else's employers had to supply all this? For the first one it was just a three page form! Sounds a bit odd to me?

Advice appreciated! Cheers

Hi Doctor Coffee,

So sad to hear that news for you. But have you signed any contract before the LMO application? As if you did then there should be a job for you then. Anyway good luck on your application. I am also in Coffee Shop industry but I have signed with another company in Alberta. My employer and I only communicate via email but I am glad the he always respond when I have any queries and is also concerned over the delay. My application is now on 12 weeks.

Guys ... If anyone got LMO applied on or before 8th November, pls respond. My LMO was applied on 8th Nov. I am in a difficult situation right now. If I don't get to know my LMO status in coming days, I'll be out of project.

If possible, can someone tell me which LMO batch is getting processed now.

Hey Foruk,

Mine was received on the same date Nov 8th! Last week SC in Toronto told my employer that they've started to work on apps received Nov 2d. I'll let y know if there's an update ;)

Thanks Miss C....

Do you have any approximate idea that when shall this be processed? I can tell my employer a tentative date since he is planning to put me on a different project.

I would really appreciate your response on this.

Hey Foruk

I'd love to give you some more infos but I don't know if they have started to work on apps after Nov 2d...it's kind of a big pain in the a*** cause no one really knows how long the process is taking now. It used to be up to 12 weeks waiting time but I have seen a lot of people who are in the same situation as me and you...week 13 and +. But let's be positive the week has just started, so let's hope SC is getting ahead of the game...starting to work on apps received week Nov 7th.
Again I let y know as soon as my employer has an update on the processing!!!

Online apps are taking about 7 to 14 days too.  They are cleaning house as they are implementing GCMS at the end of the month in Vegreville.

hey everyone,
I want to ask for advice, My LMO was refuse thanks to the minimum wage, My employer is willing to increase the wage for the one it requires. He will be sending the new application after the all process it needs, so it will be around feb 13th. But I need to apply for a restauration of status before feb28th, wich was under work permit,
Can I apply for a fast track?
How much time do I have after I applying for my restauration of status, to send the LMO confirmation?
Thanks all.

Thanks Miss C... This is killing. I have to somehow convince my boss to borrow 2-3 weeks more. And if SC objects in some points, then I don't think there are any hopes for me.

Pls keep me posted. Your updates are helping me to convince my boss in some or the other way. Once again thanks for that. I appreciate that.
