CAPIC's IMMeForum

A Vibrant Community of Your Peers

Hosting a vibrant professional community of over 1500 of your peers, CAPIC's IMMeForum offers unparalleled access to a wealth of relevant industry information in a single click. It includes:

  • “CAPIC News Break” brings you daily immigration news.
  • “Solutions” allows for regular input from peers and industry experts.
  • “Be the First to Know” with IRCC updates delivered right to your mobile device and desktop.
  • An expert panel for more complicated cases.

In addition, we're pleased to announce that we'll be introducing two new services to the IMMeForum: a “Seasoned Members” area to mentor new RCICs and an outstanding francophone forum with specialized services for the French community.


Ask an Immigration Expert


Kim Ly, RCIC, answers questions about LMIA advertising and process. These original questions were posted on CAPIC’s IMMeForum, where CAPIC members pose questions   on a variety of immigration issues. “Solutions” is a support forum for RCICs where they can seek information or knowledge about immigration issues they may not be sure about. Members are reminded as always to do their own research and due diligence as opinions rendered do not constitute legal advice. 

We are delighted to take “Solutions” one step further and bring “Ask an Immigration Expert” – a semi-regular column of in-depth answers and video podcasts in which RCICs will answer questions in a more comprehensive format than the forum allows. We hope you enjoy our first edition of “Ask an Immigration Expert.”

Below are some of the questions we received:

  • I have a high wage LMIA in process in the GTA, Canada. It has been posted for more than 30 days on Careerowl.ca, Allstarjobs.ca, Indeed.ca and Job bank. There were all free ads. Do the ads need to be paid for?
  • What are the advertising requirements for LMIAs?
  • What is the difference between high wage and low wage and the difference in advertising?
  • What does “median wage” mean and how is it involved in the LMIA advertising process?
  • What are the “must-haves” in an LMIA advertisement? Is the LMIA an employer- or employee-driven process?

Kim’s questions have been posed by RCIC Monica O’Brien, CAPIC’s Education Manager, who herself has more than 20 years of immigration consulting experience. 

You’ll see a variety of hosts in the coming months! We hope you enjoy this session!
