*Rationales

A revocation results in one or more positions on an LMO 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 In addition, CIC may also consider revoking any outstanding work permits, once the LMO has been revoked.

An LMO may be revoked if:

  • A. new information becomes available after the opinion 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 opinion; 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).

A suspension results in one or more positions on an LMO being temporarily suspended, which means that during that time it can no longer be used by a temporary foreign worker to obtain a work permit from CIC.

An LMO may be suspended if:

  • D. there are reasonable grounds to suspect that the employer or group of employers provided false, misleading or inaccurate information in the context of the request for that opinion;
  • E. new information becomes available after the positive opinion is provided and if known at the time would have led to a different opinion;
  • F. there are reasonable grounds to suspect that the employer is not complying with the conditions set out in subsection 209.3 or 209.4 of the IRPR in respect of that work permit or any other work permit and the failure to do so may not be justified under one or the other of those sections; and
  • G. the employer’s name has been added to the list referred to in subsection 209.91(3) of the IRPR.
