New Mandates to the Labour Market Opinion Application

Dear Clients,

As of June 30, 2011 Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) have implemented new mandates regarding the third party representatives of employers hiring a foreign worker. From now on, only Immigration Consultants registered with The Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) are permitted to provide Labour Market Opinion (LMO) related services to another person for a fee.

International Nannies and Homecare Ltd. has since hired the use of a fellow Association of Caregiver and Nanny Agencies Canada (ACNA) member, a long standing Immigration Consultant who is already registered with ICCRC, thus we are able to continue to provide the LMO service, either on it’s own or as part of the placement as a whole, for our clients.

For those persons considering or beginning the process of hiring a live-in caregiver, please make sure that if you pay for the services of a third party representative, you check they are now legally allowed to represent you. ICCRC are currently in the process of updating their website of new and existing members, you can contact them directly by phone or email to verify the authenticity of a member.

Any LMO application submitted by a paid representative who is not a member of ICCRC, will automatically be denied.

Further information relating to the changes to the LMO application can be found at the following link:
