Why do you need to apply for an LMIA - Labour Market Impact Assessment?


LMIA (short for Labour Market Impact Assessment) is a labour market verification process whereby Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) assesses an offer of employment to ensure that the employment of a temporary foreign worker will not have a negative impact on the Canadian labour market.

Employers are required to do extensive advertising for a minimum of four weeks to ensure Canadians have first access to available jobs. Employers also need to provide a variety of information about the position for which they want to hire a temporary foreign worker, including the number of Canadians who applied for the position, the number of Canadians who were interviewed, and detailed explanations for why the Canadian workers considered were not hired
