*Rationales

A revocation results in one or more positions on an LMIA being permanently cancelled, which means that it can no longer be used by a temporary foreign worker to obtain a work permit from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). In addition, CIC may also consider revoking any outstanding work permits, once the LMIA has been revoked.

An LMIA may be revoked if:

  • A. new information becomes available after the assessment is provided indicating that the employment of the foreign national under the work permit is having or will have a significant negative effect on the labour market in Canada;
  • B. the employer or group of employers provided false, misleading or inaccurate information in the context of the request for that assessment; and
  • C. the employer’s name has been added to the list of referred to in subsection 209.91(3) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR).
