Work Load alert

Through this service, employers can request for removing the ceiling placed by LMRA on the number of work permits by providing a proof of additional work load.

The number of work permits a business is entitled to is based on the business activity. However, in some cases, the establishment may not fully use the entitled number of permits. LMRA in this case will be placing a ceiling on the number of work permits to be issued for the establishment, or a placing “work load” offense on the CR to ensure the actual need for extra work visas. The employer should prove his need for the other work permits by proving the increase in activity load.
