Alberta Removed Occupations In Its Refusal To Process LMIA List

Posted On: Fri, Dec 27 2019

The Alberta government has reduced the number of occupations for the Temporary Foreign Worker Program to 24 occupations.

The refusal to process list is established and maintained by the Alberta Labour and Employment and Social Development Canada to make sure that employers first seek potential employees of Canada before seeking workers outside Canada.

The employer Liaison service was introduced by Canada to help Alberta employers find workers locally to fill in-demand occupations.

The refusal to process lists helps in ensuring the local skilled workers demand is required.

If an employer wants to hire the potential skilled foreign workers through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) for the following occupations will be contacted by the Alberta Department of Labour to match the skills with potential workers in Alberta.

The provincial government will revise the refusal to process list nearly twice a year.

The below mentioned occupations are removed or replaced on the refusal to Process a LMIA list:

  • NOC 0112 - Human Resources managers
