Labour Market Impact Assessment
A positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is issued by Service Canada and allows a Canadian employer to hire a foreign worker. Among other things, this application assesses whether the need to hire internationally is genuine and whether the business, job, occupation, and wage being offered qualifies under the program.
How we can help:
The first step in determining whether an LMIA is right for your business is a consultation. This 30-minute meeting is free of charge and will allow us to assess to needs of the business and decide if an LMIA is right for you.
If it’s determined the business qualifies, we take care of the advertising requirements, document review, application completion, and full application submission to the appropriate Service Canada office.
Professional fees: Starting at $2000
If you’ve already received a positive LMIA and you’re looking to start the hiring process, we can help you source qualified applicants inside and outside Canada. We pre-screen all applicants to ensure you’re only receiving candidates who are not only qualified for the job but also meet the immigration standards set out by the Government of Canada.
