LMIA Application

The LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment) application plays a crucial role in Canada’s immigration process. It’s a meticulous process that involves assessing the impact of hiring a foreign worker on the Canadian job market. This application ensures that job opportunities are first offered to Canadian citizens and permanent residents. Through the LMIA process, employers demonstrate their commitment to filling labor gaps responsibly while adhering to the nation’s employment standards. Successfully navigating the LMIA application contributes to a balanced and sustainable workforce, benefiting both employers and the Canadian workforce.

Who Can Apply for an LMIA in Canada?


  • Any Canadian employer looking to hire a foreign worker can apply for an LMIA if they can't find a Canadian for the job.
  • This applies to all kinds of businesses, big and small. The employer must show they really need a worker and can pay them.

Foreign Workers

  • If a foreign worker gets a job offer in Canada, they need a positive LMIA from the employer to get a work permit.
