Skilled Workers/Express Entry System for Skilled Workers guide: 



How long must a foreign national be employed before an employer can apply to the Nominee Program?

Under the Critical Impact Worker Stream, the foreign national must be employed in their position for a minimum of six months. The Skilled Worker Stream and Express Entry Stream do not have minimum time requirements for employment with the nominating employer but the foreign national must have at least one year experience in the occupation they are being nominated for.


Is the employer required to submit financial statements?

No. The employer is not required to submit financial statements; however, Nominee Program staff may request financial statements to ensure the company is operational and viable.


Do I need to submit an LMIA?

Employers applying to nominate a foreign national through the Employer driven streams do not need to submit an LMIA, but must follow advertising requirements.


Can I nominate a Foreign National from abroad?

Critical Impact Workers (NOC C & D) abroad are not eligible for nomination, as they must work for their northern nominating employer for a minimum of six (6) months prior to applying to the program. 

Skilled workers (NOC O, A & B) are typically not eligible for nomination when living abroad or in Canada without a valid work permit. However, in exceptional circumstances and depending on the Employer’s business case and operational circumstances, the Nominee Program may consider assessing a file.
