List of Occupations for the Facilitated Labour Market Impact Assessment Process in Quebec

List of Occupations for the Facilitated Labour Market Impact Assessment Process in Quebec


Quebec’s regional occupation lists are produced to reflect regional disparities in labour market needs.

The lists include all categories of occupations eligible for the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) as classified by Canada’s 2016 National Occupational Classification’s facilitated process.

Generally, as part of the LMIA process, Canadian employers must demonstrate that employing a foreign worker will have a positive or neutral impact on the Canadian labour market, and that there is currently no Canadian citizen or permanent resident available to fill the position, which is typically done by advertising the position on several venues. However, for occupations included in Quebec’s regional occupations’ lists, Quebec employers are not required to demonstrate advertisement and recruitment efforts.

Transition Plans are required for all high-wage LMIA applications. Under the facilitated process, however, a Transition Plan is only required on the second LMIA application for the same occupation.

The wages offered to all temporary foreign workers must be consistent with the wage rate paid to Canadians and permanent residents working in the same occupation and geographical area.

Note: Quebec’s simplified processing occupations list is updated annually. The regional lists below came into effect on February 24, 2019. A transitional period of 30 days was granted to the employer to allow the examination of an application submitted according to the list of the previous year (2018).

These lists are for the recruitment of temporary foreign workers only (not business owners). Some occupations are included in the Global Talent Stream occupations list. These occupations are indicated in the last column of the table.

Canadian employers:To learn more about your options for hiring foreign workers, please contact wp@canadavisa.com. A legal expert will provide a free consultation.

Foreign workers: If you have received a job offer from a Canadian employer and wish to submit an inquiry about getting a work permit and working legally in Canada, please complete the form on this page.
