Effective February 2015: Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has implemented a new process, which affects those Canadian companies looking to hire, or extend the current terms of foreign workers, who are Labour Market Impact Assessment exempt. Postdoctoral Fellows are included in this category of worker.

The new process includes the payment of a fee called an “Employer Compliance Fee” which is currently in the amount of $230.00. This fee will be the responsibility of the prospective Postdoc’s supervisor. It will initially be paid by the Office of the VP (Research), who is responsible for preparing the official Postdoctoral Fellowship offer, with other paperwork that must be submitted to CIC.

As part of the paperwork required from the supervisor a UNB account number must be provided for charged back purposes. These changes only affect Postdoctoral offers to international persons who do not possess a Post-Graduate Work Permit.
