Arranged Employment Opinion

Additional points, upto 15 can be earned on the Federal Skilled Worker Selection Grid, where the employer has made a permanent, full-time, non-seasonal Offer of employment to a foreign national, and either of the following situation applies: 

  1. Applicant is NOT expected to work in Canada before becoming a Permanent Resident of Canada.
  2. Applicant is currently working in Canada on a valid Work Permit.

For Applicants in group 1,  the Immigration Department requires that Service Canada (SC) provide an opinion on a job offer before it can allot any points for AEO, as per the guidelines issued by HRSDC.

SC considers the following factors – in addition to the LMO factors – while processing an AEO application:

  • The job offer is permanent;
  • The job offer is genuine;
  • The wages and working conditions are comparable to those offered to Canadians working in the occupation;
  • The employment is full-time;
  • The employment is not seasonal

This process may be completed within 6-8 weeks.
