Canadian employers will have to now use new Job Match Service to invite applicants from August 28, 2017, for the Provisional Overseas Worker Program. The new rating system will align Canada Job Bank registered workers with advertised positions. Canadian employers will be required to invite those candidates who are awarded specific stars with respect to a certain position.
Job Match Service is the new feature being launched by the Canadian government. The changes will affect both the low-wage and high-wage applications of the Impact Assessment for Labor Market. Canadian employers who intend to hire immigrant workers through the Provisional Overseas Worker Program must first avail an affirmative LMIA report prior to recruiting an immigrant worker. Affirmative LMIA report proves that no citizen of Canada or Permanent Resident was available and agreeing to be hired for that job.
Anonymous registered job seeker profiles will be able to be accessed by the Canadian employers through the Job Match Services. The profiles must be suitable for the job and skill requirements for the job specified by the employer. Each profile will be assessed and awarded stars ranging from one to five stars. Profiles with higher stars will have more suitability for the specified job position, as quoted by the CIC News.
Canadian employers must comply with specifications for advertising jobs prior to applying for the LMIA. However, there are some exemptions to this. Employers who can hire through the IMP or are otherwise exempted for advertising from the initial process for availing LMIA are exempted from this rule.
From August 28, Canadian Employers will be required to advertise on the Job Match Service for inviting applicants irrespective of the territory or province.
