What is an LMIA for a Work Permit?

We have seen many people straight away jump to apply for Canada PR from India without even checking out the relevant information and finding out the best path for them. LMIA is an important aspect of a work permit, which is basically a document issued by ESDC- Employment and Social Development Canada. LMIA also known as Labor Market Impact Assessment is positive when it showcases there is a requirement to hire a professional outside the country to fill a specific role. However, a negative LMIA indicates that a Canadian citizen or permanent resident is available to fulfill a certain position. No foreign national is allowed to apply for LMIA as it can only be done by the employer of Canada. Once the employer receives a positive LMIA, they can hire outside of Canada under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program.

Requirements of an LMIA of Canada


The Canadian employer submits the Labor Market Impact Assessment applicant as a hard copy or by mail. It all begins with a non-refundable CAD$ 1k fee, which is usually the same for all professions except for in-home caregivers. All the documents that give evidence about the legitimate Canadian business of the employer are a must. The employer must submit proof that they tried searching for an employee within the country among the citizens and permanent residents. They also need to submit a transition plan as to how they will fulfill their employee requirement by hiring Canadian citizens or PRs in the future. There has to be a clarification about the TFWP- Temporary Foreign Worker Program wages and also proof of insurance coverage for the potential foreign employees. Once the LMIA is approved, then the employer can hire the foreign national as their employee. Positive LMIA is valid for six months and the foreign national should apply for a work permit or Canada PR from India soon after the LMIA approval.
