With the destruction of the immigrant investor and entrepreneur programs in Canada, few options remain to help business immigrants find their way to Canada. In this Episode, Immigration Lawyer, Jeffrey Lowe explains how the Owner Operator LMIA can be the game changer in facilitating permanent residence for not only business immigrants, but one of the groups hit hardest by the creation of Express Entry – the international student.
In this episode of the Canadian Immigration Podcast the Chief Inspirational Officer of Vancouver based Lowe and Company, Jeffrey Lowe, joins us to offer some unique strategies for using the Owner Operator Labour Market Impact Assessment to facilitate immigration opportunities of not only business people, but international students working in Canada on postgraduate work permits.
I was completely blown away by the creativity Jeffrey uses in securing amazing results for his clients. The insight Jeffrey shares can not be found in any immigration law textbook or government website. In this episode he revealed some brilliant strategies that can benefit any immigration lawyer or consultant struggling to assist clients who are left in the dark because of the exclusionary nature of Express Entry. Jeffrey is without a doubt one of the most entrepreneurial lawyers I know and I was delighted to have him join me.
In my interview with Jeffrey, we cover the following areas:
- What is an LMIA?
- What is the basis for the Owner Operator LMIA?
- Practical tips on applying for an Owner Operator LMIA.
- Specific examples of how Jeffrey has used the Owner Operator LMIA to benefit his clients.
- Unique strategies for leveraging off of LMIA exempt work permits to transition to an Owner Operator LMIA and eventual permanent resident status in Canada.
