IF YOU PLAN TO WORK
FOR A DESIGNATED EMPLOYER
LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment) is a confirmation document which Canada bureau of labors should certify when an employer needs to recruit a foreign employee.
Positive LMIA shows the market needs a foreign employee when there isn’t any Canadian citizen suitable for that job.
When the Bureau of labors certifies the positive LMIA, the employee can apply for the work permit.
Employees need to meet these requirements to get the work permit:
- Job offer letter
- Job contract
- A copy of LMIA
- LMIA number
