Be prepared for a 12 week wait. If you get it sooner then great but expecting it sooner is asking for misery. Good luck!fredde587 said:Just wondering what the normal processing time would be for a high waged job ( $28 ) in the oil fields in alberta? My employer sent in the application today what should I be expecting?
You never know @fredde587. Not many persons have been posting the results of LMO/LMIA applications since the changes. When your process is completed please share your informationfredde587 said:damn i figured would be much faster, wallet is gonna be pretty much empty lol
^^^ this is the accurate answer, unless the position has a wage of $49 per hour or above in which case it would be processed in a few days.ButterflyChemist said:Be prepared for a 12 week wait. If you get it sooner then great but expecting it sooner is asking for misery. Good luck!
Yeah, ive heard of situations where employers have given their employee an unbelievable pay increase to fall within certain pay criteria and it just makes it worse..beholder69 said:It is in the high wage category but this alone doesn't make it qualify for expedited processing, since it's not a high demand NOC, you'd need a much higher wage for it to happen, as mentioned above.
However, I think it's best waiting a bit longer but have a positive answer than get expedited processing and receive a negative one. A very high wage, higher than what would be expected for the position offered and/or for the specific employer, could potentially do more harm than good. So keep being patient and good luck with the outcome!

Just letting it takes it course and waiting it out!
I know its classed as a high wage for this particular job type but not as an overall wage in alberta.
My permit expires the 4th of September, ill probably have to change to visitor for a couple of weeks, extended vacation time
Correct. IECs are different from other work permits. They don't benefit from implied status. So you have to stop working as soon as your IEC expires if you don't have a new work permit already approved.jaybakerca said:I was previously told that because my work permit is through IEC canada, that i cannot extend my work permit?
