IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? The Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs has released a draft guidance on an online work-permit application system that it is currently being tested in some provinces.
What does the change mean? The system will be in pilot phase until the end of June and become mandatory for all provinces starting July 1, when it is expected to be centralized in one nationwide portal.
Background: The current online system is in testing stage and individual provinces vary widely in their implementation. Beginning July 1, an online portal for submitting applications and supporting documents will become mandatory for all provinces. In addition to shortening processing times, the system will allow companies to monitor the progress of their applications and receive notices from authorities on pending applications.
BAL Analysis: The system should improve consistency and efficiency in processing. BAL will continue to update clients on developments and improvements to the online system as they are implemented.
