Removal of Name in Labour Market Opinion

Due to privacy concerns, Service Canada (HRSDC) Labour Market Opinion (LMO) Confirmations and Annexes will no longer necessarily carry the name of the foreign worker approved therein. In some cases, where privacy concerns are not an issue, officials may include the name of the foreign worker in the notes in the case, this is not a standardized practice.

These changes do not effect the process of seeking the LMO. However, in cases in which LMOs are granted for multiple workers, it is necessary to be careful to issue the correct Confirmation letter and annex to each such worker to prevent problems when seeking the work permit.
