Labour Market Impact Assessment (“LMIA”)

An LMIA is an approval letter issued by The Employment and Social Development of Canada (“ESDC”). Your Canadian employer must obtain the LMIA on your behalf by demonstrating that there are no qualified Canadian workers available to fill the job position and that the foreign worker will be receive a salary and benefits based on federal and provincial standards. After receiving a positive LMIA, a foreign national may apply for a Canadian work permit.
