Hello,
With the new changes my question from two weeks ago was apparently lost in cyber space, here it is again.

Regretfully my LMIA was denied, supposedly my employer didn't specify hourly wage 0.o
He's supposed to readvertise the position for 4 weeks and reapply.
My question is, how long the reapplication takes? The first time it took four months to get an answer.
Is it posible to appeal instead?
Thank you.-

Hey all, excellent thread and forum page. I think I've gained a much better insight into the LMIA/PR Application Process than I did from the consultants hired by my company to help me process my LMIA application. My LMIA application was submitted early May and we're just waiting to hear from Service Canada on the interview date for the above. The LMIA is for a permanent job (Retail Management) in Alberta. My question is... is it possible for me to start an Express Entry Profile and start my PR application? and is it possible to find out a bit more about the projected timeline for the LMIA Application? Thanks all!!!

I would expect the LMIA to take 2-4 months to process. There's never an interview required for an LMIA (sometimes for the work permit, but not for the LMIA). You can certainly start your Express Entry profile - however you can't say you have a job offer in Canada until you have the approved LMIA.
