LMIA Changes

There have been recent changes by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) in which certain occupation no longer qualify to apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). The reason for this change is because a study was done and statistics have shown that specific job duties can be done by citizens or permanent residents of Canada. Since these jobs can be filled by Canadians or permanent residents, service Canada no longer issues a LMIA for certain occupations. You can find the list on

If you are under on of these particular NOCS it doesn’t necessarily mean that you know your out of luck it possibly means that we have to look at and see if there is another relevant NOC for you. So the NOC 6641 the food counter attendance kitchen helper in related occupations, the 6661 the like duty cleaners, 6611 cashiers, 6622 grocery clerks, 7611 construction trades, and 8612 landscaping.

As you can see the list predominately covers NOC C and D as they are considered low skilled and the ones that are not service Canada seen an influx of LMIA applications with these NOCS.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.
