Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
The Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a process that employers in Canada must go through in order to hire temporary foreign workers. The LMIA assesses the impact that hiring a foreign worker will have on the Canadian labour market and determines whether there are any qualified Canadians available to fill the position.
The LMIA process involves several steps, including advertising the job opportunity, reviewing resumes and conducting interviews, and submitting the LMIA application to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). The ESDC will review the application and determine whether the employer meets the necessary requirements. If the application is approved, the employer will be granted an LMIA, which will allow them to hire a foreign worker for the position.
The LMIA process can be time-consuming and costly for employers, as they must pay a fee to apply and may need to provide additional documentation to support their application. However, it is an important step in ensuring that foreign workers are only hired when there are no qualified Canadians available for the job.
At Visa Vyom Immigration, we can assist employers in advertising the job opportunity and reviewing resumes, as well as preparing and submitting the LMIA application to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
