LMIA stands for Labour Market Impact Assessment. This is a unique innovative immigration program by the government of Canada to hire temporary foreign workers to fill in the temporary labour and skill shortage. If your business is facing shortage of workers who are not available rightly in Canada, your business can apply for Labour Market Impact Assessment or popularly known as LMIA. This program is well-suited for businesses who are in dire need of workers as they can apply for LMIA and get the required workers at a very short period of time. The process is very simple and our team of LMIA experts can help you get the required approval.
How the LMIA works
If you run a business and looking facing shortage of workers, you can apply for LMIA. Here is the process:
You will first need to try and find a Canadian or permanent resident to fill the job. You will need to meet some requirements, including posting your job ad on the Government of Canada’s Job Bank, and advertising in two other places.
Once you do this, if you are still not able to fill your job, you can apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) through Employment and Social Development Canada/Service Canada. If they agree there is a need for a foreign worker to fill the job, you will get a positive LMIA. An LMIA verifies that there is a genuine need for temporary workers in that category and currently there is no Canadian available to do the job. The business can then apply for the LMIA, pay a nominal fee and get the approval.
