Information for faculty administrators
Processing times for Labour Market Impact Assessment and CAQs have dramatically increased. It currently takes approximately 10 to 12 weeks to acquire these documents. In order to guarantee the greatest possible chance of success in obtaining a LMIA, the process should begin in January for an August 1 start date for tenure-track hires and in January for LTAs.
Foreign-national spouses of Canadian tenure-track faculty are not eligible for open spousal work permits and normally must enter Canada as visitors. Without a work permit of their own, they cannot apply for Québec health insurance and are considered non-residents for tuition fees. The faculty member should make arrangements to sponsor the Canadian permanent resident application of his/her spouse as soon as possible.
Repatriated Canadian faculty members in designated disciplines (science and engineering, finance, health, or new information and communications technologies) may be eligible for the Québec tax exemption measure.
New faculty must provide you with their emergency contact information, local-area address and telephone number and update their profile (address, phone number, emergency contact, etc.) through the My Concordia Portal.
