Canadian Foreign Worker Program to Change Another Time

Foreign worker program of Canada to change
In addition to the advancements that have been made to the Temporary Worker Program, the Canadian government has all set to make little improvements in LMIA applications. Effective from 30 April 2015, a new plan of recognizing employer eligibility criteria to recruit an overseas worker will be implemented soon. Though this new amendment has been contemplated earlier, it has set to put forth now. Till date, all employers who have planned to hire overseas skilled workers under post-June 2014 scheme considered the occupation that is suitable for NOC designation (  NOC C, D = low skill, NOC 0, A, B = high skill ) and salary for the same. 

In maximum cases, wages of highly skilled occupations would be higher than the median and low-skilled occupations, those have the cap on their positions would be lower than the median. However, low-skilled positions that come under NOC C and D category Job Bank-based median salaries would be higher than the provincial median pays, and thus would be contemplated high-wage under transition scheme. 

To make it much clear, in case a job bank promulgates A occupation, which is an NOC C-level profession needs a median pay of X dollars, which happens only when X dollar is higher than the listed provincial salary, then that occupation is considered as high wage profession. Reportedly, this would subject to transition scheme.  

Few of the concerned sources of the country noted that these all changes will be streamlined under the new scheme. As per the new test, it will check whether the salaries required for a particular profession are compatible with the guidelines of job bank and are higher than or below the provincial median pay. If they are above, then they are considered high-wage steam else low-wage. It won’t consider whatever may be the NOC code of that profession is. In case median Job Bank pay is more than the provincial median, then it requires transition plan and is taken into account as high-wage. 

For all low-pay professions, employers are suggested to take in return airfare, and proffer a contract with the arranged obligations, and make sure that the affordable accommodation is available. Existing government of the country has also planned to make a proper survey on the unemployment rate.

A few further points:
  • For the job equivalency assessment ESDC uses 2006 NOC (National Occupational Classification) requirements 
  • Annual wages are calculated as per the assumption of a 40-hour work week
  • New amendments will be promulgated on 30 April impacting high as well as low-wage occupations
  • With a strong intention to support Express Entry, the permanent residence request will also have new forms 
  • LMIAs in Quebec will hold the similar requirements as like all other provinces
  • LMIAs for high-demand and high-paid professions or short-duration work periods will now be proffered with a 10-business-day service standard.
