Obtaining A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) allows a Canadian employer to legally hire a temporary foreign worker to fill job role.
Service Canada will provide Labour Market Impact Assessments (formally known as Labour Market Opinions) to businesses that prove that they are unable to find a suitable Canadian citizen or permanent resident to fill the job.
However, several detailed steps need to be taken before Service Canada will provide an LMIA to a business. It is worthwhile to work with a lawyer who can walk you through these steps in an efficient and accurate way.
