ESDC updated processing times for LMIA application

Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) has updated the processing times for the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) applications under various streams. Based on statistics from all processing centres, the current average LMIA processing times for all streams is as follows:

  • Global Talent Stream – 17 business days (4 days less)
  • Agricultural stream – 30 business days (2 days less)
  • Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program – 21 business days (4 days more)
  • Permanent residence stream – 49 business days (3 days more)
  • In-home caregivers – 26 business days (11 days less)
  • High-wage stream – 66 business days (12 days more)
  • Low-wage stream – 64 business days (2 days more)

This data still does not reflect the consequences of the LMIA online portal being down for one month.
