In essence, a POSITIVE LMIA is an authorization that the Government of Canada issues that allows a Canadian Employer to hire one or various foreign workers.
The LMIA is issued by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and outlines the impact of hiring a foreign worker on Canada’s labour market.
It proves the business’ legitimacy, financial capacity and a genuine need for foreign workers.
LMIA Assistance & Representation
Obtaining a positive LMIA has become a very complicated endeavour. Having professional assistance during an LMIA application can enhance a company's chances of obtaining a positive outcome. Errors and omissions can be the cause of refusals or unnecessary delays that can be very costly for a business in need of labour.
