On October 19, 2021, the Government of Canada updated the instructions for the temporary public policy for graphic designers working on the live-action television and film industry that will be in effect from September 10, 2021, to March 9, 2022. The new R01 Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) exemption code, as well as links to the Canadian Heritage page on tax credits and the Telefilm Canada page on funding, were added to assist officers. As of now, employers must use the administrative LMIA exemption code “R01 A25.2 Public policy” when submitting the offer in the Employer Portal, and write in the LMIA exemption justification field that they “apply under the Graphic Designer public policy, and attestation letter has been provided to the temporary worker.”
