labour market impact assessment
The Temporary Foreign Worker Program
This program is designed to help businesses fill positions when there is a labour shortage. A business applies for a Labour Market Impact Assessment and upon approval is matched with a worker with the skills the business requires. There are several programs under the umbrella of this program: Skilled Worker, Skilled Trades and Canadian Experience program.
If you are interested in working in Canada, you must apply through the Express Entry System and obtain a job offer from an employer. The work permit you are issued under this program is tied to a specific employer for the duration of your stay in Canada.
If you are representing a company and are interested in hiring from abroad we can help you with the LMIA process.
