Team,

I did ask my question to IRCC and below is the response I received. Can someone explain as Im quite confused..

We confirm that you may leave Canada while your application is being processed. Upon return, an officer will need to ask you questions to ensure you still meet all requirements before allowing you to re-enter Canada and avoid having your application considered as abandoned due to your absence.

If you leave Canada and want to return, please make sure that you bring all the required documents to re-enter. This can include a valid:

· Passport or other travel documents,

· Work permit, study permit or visitor record, if you need one, and

· Temporary resident visa or Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), if you need one.
This response has nothing to do with your PR application. All they have told you what you will need to be able to re-enter Canada.

Hi,

I am on a closed ended work permit and my job is LMIA exempt under international trade agreement. I have completed one year in Canada and ready to apply PR via CEC or FSW.

Most probably my company would issue me a new job offer and support my PR application. I was wondering, just in case my company doesn't issue me a new job offer, can i get an offer letter from another company if they are ready to employ me? If yes, do the new company have to apply for LMIA before issuing me the offer letter?

Thanks for your expert replies.

Exemption from LMIA only applies if you’re already working for the company that’ll give you the new job offer. Else, you need an LMIA. Do you need those 50 points to get invited?

https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/express-entry/documents/offer-employment.html
  • by an employer with a new positive LMIA that approves the offer and names you and your position OR
  • if you’re currently working in Canada in a NOC 0, A or B job on a work permit that was issued based on an LMIA, and:
    • you’re working for an employer listed on your work permit
    • you’re authorized to work in Canada on the day you apply for a permanent resident visa, and when the visa is issued
    • your current employer made you an offer to give you a full-time job for at least one year if you’re accepted as a permanent resident OR
  • if you have a valid work permit for a NOC 0, A or B job that is exempt from needing an LMIA, and you:
    • are currently working for an employer specified on the work permit
    • have one year of full-time work experience (or an equal amount of part-time work) for that employer
    • have a valid job offer from that employer for at least one year after we issue your permanent resident visa

Thanks for your reply, much appreciated.
Yes I do need those 50 points. However I have read that the company doesn’t need to do LMIA if they are issuing a job offer to the one who is already on a work permit that is LMIA exempt under international trade agreement.
Further information- Since I am from uk my work permit was LMIA exempt under international trade agreement.

Read the above again. LMIA exempt only applies if you’re working for the company mentioned on your work permit and they’re extending you an offer after you get your PR. Is your employer mentioned on your wp? If so, then you don’t need an LMIA. If not, then you need an LMIA.

its mentioned there that your wp should state a specific employer AND meets an international trade agreement. Not OR.

you can work for any company, but the job offer won’t be considered valid under express entry.

Yes, the name of the employer is mentioned on the work permit.

So it’s a closed work permit. If another company wants to hire you and you want to use that for express entry, then you need an LMIA. If the company mentioned on your work permit extends an offer, then you don’t need an LMIA.
