Canada Introduces Innovation Stream without LMIA to Address Tech Labour Shortages

The Canadian Government plans to introduce a new Innovation Stream under the International Mobility Program (IMP) to address labour shortages in key tech occupations and support Canada’s innovation goals. This stream, set to launch by the end of 2023, aims to attract highly talented individuals by allowing an exemption from the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) process.

By consulting with tech industry stakeholders, the government acknowledges the ongoing labour shortages and the need to broaden Canada’s talent base. The Innovation Stream will provide a streamlined pathway for employers and talented workers in the high-tech industries, aligning with Canada’s innovation priorities. This initiative reflects the government’s commitment to fostering innovation, supporting high-tech industries, and ensuring that employers have access to the skilled workforce necessary for growth. The introduction of the Innovation Stream demonstrates Canada’s proactive approach to talent acquisition and its dedication to remaining at the forefront of technological advancements.
