Get an LMIA-supported work permit

To obtain a work permit supported by an LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment), you must first secure a job offer from a Canadian employer who is willing to apply for an LMIA. The employer will submit an application to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) to demonstrate the need for hiring a foreign worker and receive a neutral or positive LMIA if approved.

LMIA applications and LMIA-supported work permit applications are subject to specific requirements. Navigating this process can be complex, and seeking assistance from an immigration consultant can be beneficial in ensuring a smooth and successful application.
