Working Visa on LMIA | LMIA Consultant Canada

Canada is the second biggest country in the world, with equally contradicting population numbers which are found to be a major setback when it comes to contributing towards economic growth.
There has always been a high scarcity of skilled and unskilled workers in Canada, and hence we can see a warm welcome for immigrants to fill out this gap. We provide end-to-end assistance when it comes to acquiring a Canadian work visa to help our clients to get landed and carry forward their professional life successfully.

Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)

One must obtain an LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment) certificate to work without any hassles in Canada this certificate depicts that the certain job to which a foreign resource got recruited is capable of meeting the requirement and moreover no Canadian resource can do this job.

Four basic steps in getting Canadian LMIA Job offer

  • The employer must apply for labour market opinion
  • Employer extending temporary job market option to their foreign workers
  • Skilled foreign workers applying for a job
  • Issuing job offer post evaluating the skills of foreign workers

Attaining the temporary work permit Canada initially requires the clearance of Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) where a particular foreign worker must meet certain criteria. There is a certain class of people who exempt these criteria:

  • Skilled workers who get covered under NAFTA agreement
  • Intra-company transferees
  • Working holiday permit holders
  • Post-graduate temporary work permit holders
  • Participants from private academic exchanges like postdoctoral fellows and visiting professors
Here the employer must send a detailed requirement regarding the need for foreign talent for their concern to Canada immigration agency attaching detailed job description that includes:
  • Job title
  • Job description
  • Detailed explanation for the requirement
  • Specifics about salary
  • Name and address of the employer
After receiving all these details, the Canadian immigration agency will forward it to the CIC with the job offer and LMIA letter, and CIC will be giving the final approval. Only after receiving the LMIA letter and the job offer the concerned foreign skilled worker can apply for a temporary working visa that may vary with its terms and conditions according to the province. If you apply for Quebec, then it requires special permission from CAQ or, you may also need to visit a visa officer to get cleared with the interview. The final step involves the issuing of a visa by the Canada Border Service Agency (CBSA) where the concerned officer provides you with the visa post verifying all the documents and in some cases, you may need to get a Temporary Resident Visa Canada (TRV) based on your nation.
