    Waiting for LMIA/Visitor extension?

    As above, if a person is currently in Canada as a visitor would an employer's pending LMIA application with the person's name on it be a valid reason for a visitor extension till it goes through? Obviously have my doubts, since it's a work related reason and not a visit one but worth asking...

    LMIA-Schedule B Impact on Canadian Labour Market

    I need some help figuring out what exactly the above form is and whether or not the employer needs to fill it out or not. It says it's for employers who receive services under a contract.

    Does anyone know whether or not a person's name can be included in 2 different LMIA applications from separate employers? Obviously only one of them would be used if both came back positive but can the process work this way?

    LMIA advertisement sites/prints

    Apart from Jobbank or provincial equivalent, does the employer really have to advertise the job in printed media as well or can they only do it on webpages? If the latter, are sites like kijiji etc accepted?

    Very important question on the cap

    If an employer currently has less than 10% TFW on their work site according to the calculations given by Service Canada but if they hire a new one, they'll go above 10%, will the LMIA application be accepted? I'm other words, do the hours the new TFW would work count towards the total TFW hours?

    Need a couple clarifications for the LMIA process

    As above, I have two questions after reading the changes: 1) does it mean that now employers can offer TFWs a wage below the provincial median one? If of course they are not affected with the cap. 2) if they offer more than that, what could be actual examples of a transition plan activities?

    Urgent, need advice in a very serious matter regarding SINP programs

    Ok, this will probably be a bit long, so I'll skip the details, unless I'm asked to provide more. Our lives just took a weird twist and as me and my wife were finally feeling settled in Canada, insecurity returned. Very long story short: My mother who is all alone (and I really mean all alone)...
