Introducing Canada’s Innovation Stream Pilot: LMIA-Exempt Work Permits for High-Growth Companies



The Wage Requirement

The wage requirement is a little convoluted, but it is designed to ensure the temporary worker will receive competitive compensation for performing the work. The specific requirements outline: 

The wage offered for the position is at or above the median hourly wage for the province or territory: AND 


Meets the requirements of the applicable collective bargaining agreement; 

OR if there is not collective bargaining agreement)

Is either: 

  • At the higher of either the median wage for the occupation posted on the Job Bank’s Wage Report; OR 
  • Within the range paid to current employees hired for the same job and work location with similar skills and experience.

What if the wage offered does not meet this requirement? 

If the wage/salary offered does not meet the wage requirement, the employer will need to apply for an LMIA. It will not be able to take advantage of the LMIA-exempt work permits.
