How To File For An LMIA In Canada 2022

The Labour Market Impact Assessment - What Is It & How To Get One.

If you’re an employer in Canada who is interested in hiring a temporary foreign worker, you may need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).

An LMIA is required if an employer has an open position at their business in Canada but was unable to find Canadians or permanent residents to fulfil the role and they are wanting to hire a temporary foreign worker. The purpose of an LMIA is to determine the impact that hiring a temporary foreign worker may have on Canada’s labour market and ensure that by hiring a foreign worker, you're not taking away opportunities from Canadians or Permanent Residents.

Most positions will require an LMIA before a foreign national can come to work for you as an employer in Canada.

Since incomplete and negative LMIA applications are neither returned nor refundable, it is important that employers are well informed before applying for an LMIA. Jade is highly skilled in informing employers on the most strategic ways to ensure that they comply with the requirements of the program they are hiring through, prove the authenticity of their business, and showcase their local recruitment efforts. She is also able to assist temporary foreign workers in applying for permanent residence or a work permit once a positive LMIA has been received.
