New instructions on the “Mobilité francophone” Labour Market Impact Assessment exemption under the International Mobility Program


As of June 1, 2016, a new Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) exemption has been created for Francophones destined outside Quebec.

The new “Mobilité francophone” exemption is designed for foreign nationals who have been recruited through a Francophone immigration promotional event coordinated between the federal government and Francophone minority communities, who are destined for a province or territory outside of Quebec and who qualify under a National Occupational Classification 0, A or B. These foreign nationals may be eligible for an exemption from the LMIA requirement under paragraph 205(a) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations.
