Labour Market Impact Assessment

 

Are you an employer looking for LMIA assistance?

 

LMIA application processes is always a headache and time-consuming. Our expertise can help save your business time and costs.

Generally, a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is required before a Canadian employer can hire a temporary foreign worker (formerly known as a Labour Market Opinion – LMO). In order to obtain an LMIA, employers must advertise the position for at least four weeks and potentially interview candidates who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents.

The LMIA process distinguishes between “high-wage” and “low-wage” employees. Temporary foreign workers whose remuneration is below the provincial/territorial median wage are considered low-wage. Temporary foreign workers whose remuneration is equal to or above the median wage are considered high-wage.

LMIA applications are detailed and require lots of documentation.. Employers must provide a written description of why each un-hired Canadian was not qualified for the job. Not all work permit types require  LMIA to be issued; work permit streams that are LMIA-exempt come under the International Mobility Program.
