A Canadian employer is required to apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) before they hire a foreign worker. The LMIA is a report issued by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) which outlines the impact or lack of it that hiring a foreign worker would have on Canada’s labour market.
A positive LMIA will show that there is a need for a foreign worker to fill that specific job, as there is no Canadian worker available to do that job.
LMIA is an essential and an integral part of any kind of work permit:
- Temporary Foreign Worker
- Live-In Caregiver Program
- Arranged Employment Offer
