The Alberta and Federal Immigration Authorities have revised the list of high wage occupations. The revised list has removed several occupations that will no longer qualify for a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment during the application of work permit. The official website of the Federal Government warms the removed occupants to beware any application submitted by them will be instantly rejected “We will not process your application if the position you are looking to fill is included in the list of occupations”- a statement from the official site of the Federal Government.
