As youth program and IEC work permits are not generally eligible for renewal, it is expected that your employer will need to obtain a LMO prior to your ability to receive a new work permit. In a case like this, it will typically mean that the employer will need to demonstrate that a sufficient recruiting effort was carried out in Canada, and that any Canadian that responded to the ad is not qualified for the position.
