(continuation… ) Federal Skilled Trades Program!

Fourteen Portuguese construction workers filed for leave for judicial review to answer the question of whether or not an officer obliged to conduct a substituted evaluation for people who did not meet the CLB requirements under the Federal Skilled Trades program. The answer is ‘no,’ but you can read about the process to come to that solution here.

Here is an interesting case to demonstrate the importance of proving that there aren’t any Canadians or Permanent Residents available to perform the tasks required (welding and carpentry in this case) before applying for an LMIA.

In this case, we can see a thorough example of ‘ability to perform the work sought’ as seen in R200(3)(a). A person can be the best trades-person in the world, but if he/she does not meet the minimum language requirements, the application is likely to be denied.

In another example highlighting the importance of an LMIA, the officer’s decision to reject an LMIA application was sent to another officer because of perceived ‘incompetence’ by the deciding officer.
