On March 17, 2016, IRCC (Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada) has announced that, starting from June 1, 2016, the Mobilité Francophone stream will exempt employers from the Labour Market Impact Assessment process when they hire francophone workers in managerial, professional and technical/skilled trades occupations from abroad to work in francophone minority communities outside of Quebec.
