Bad start of the day!! The economy will rebound for sure like we've seen WCS bounced back already and their employment numbers are going to improve (much to be seen in the upcoming Labour force survey report). It's not the time to restrict immigration when their housing sector is stressed, skill shortages mounting high & huge retirements coming up.

2019 was a golden year when so many nominations poured in especially in the 400+ CRS category. Alberta's reduced intake now making me worried if there is any chance for outland applicants this year.

This is latest on Alberta nominee programs and temporary worker program. Looks like rest of the 2020 is pretty hard for outlanders. They are going to issue almost 2000 more NOIs in rest of the year with many NOCs not allowed.

Get your LMIA extended, its free and fast, the officer which issued the LMIA can extend its validity upto 3 months. Why didn't you applied for work permit? Is your LMIA dual intent? Also you can't travel to Canada on the base of LMIA, which is only suggestion by service Canada. For traveling you need authorization like work permit, study visa, PR etc
