Labour Market Impact Assessment

A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a report issued by ESDC (Employment and Social Development Canada) that outlines the impact that hiring a foreign worker would have on Canada’s labour market. This is the first step in recruiting those hard-to-fill positions in your company. Employers must obtain this assessment before hiring a foreign worker. Once a positive LMIA has been issued; it must be forwarded to the employees abroad to enable them to obtain a visa and/or a work permit that will allow them to travel to Canada to start work. If the worker is already in Canada, a work permit renewal application can be submitted to allow the foreign national to remain in Canada.

We will gladly provide you with an assessment of your particular situation and determine whether filing an application for a Labour Market Impact Assessment is likely to result in a positive determination.
