Low Wage LMIA (Labour Market Opinion) Changes

The Federal government has quietly implemented significant changes related to low wage workers in seasonal industries. "Employers in seasonal industries hiring TFWs in low-wage seasonal positions that are no more than 180 calendar days in length…” may exceed the cap, effectively allowing unlimited recruitment in various industries.

Seasonal is defined as a circumstance where "both the industry and the occupation experience significant fluctuations in labour demand between “peak” and “off-peak” periods, usually occurring on or around the same dates every year”.
