LMIA - Labour Market Impact Assessment

  • Are you a Canadian employer struggling to find qualified local staff?
  • Are you losing contracts because you don’t have the manpower?
  • Have you been trying to recruit locally but have a high turnover?

A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a document that an employer in Canada may need to get before hiring a foreign worker. A positive LMIA will show that there is a need for a foreign worker to fill the job. It will also show that no Canadian worker is available to do the job.

Help With Inspections & Employer Compliance Review

Inspections may occur after a positive LMIA has been issued and the foreign worker has received a work permit and begun working. Inspections may be conducted during a period of six years beginning on the first day of the period of employment for which the work permit is issued to the foreign worker.

Employer Compliance Reviews occur as part of the LMIA application assessment process to verify past compliance. On the LMIA application form, returning employers attest to having met TFW Program wages, working conditions and occupation requirements, including the treatment of temporary foreign workers, for previously employed temporary foreign workers.
