Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)

WHAT IS A LMIA

 An LMIA allows a Canadian Employer to fill a labour shortage and hire a skilled and qualified foreign worker. Employers who wish to hire foreign workers must get approval from Service Canada to hire foreign workers. In order to get approval of an LMIA, an employer has to prove that they made genuine efforts to attract Canadians.  Many positions continue to sit vacant today, majority being skilled trades and lower-skilled occupational job categories in which Canadians are not lining up to work.

A GROWING PROBLEM

 Reports estimate that Canada will have a labour force shortage of close to 2 million workers by 2031. Every year over 150,000 people from around the globe come to Canada to work for Canadian employers. Many positions continue to sit vacant today, majority being skilled trades and lower-skilled occupational job categories in which Canadians are not lining up to work.

LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment)

 A lot of different factors depend on a LMIA approval. For example, the position being offered, region, high wage or low wage etc. A high-wage worker is someone who has a wage which is equal or above the provincial median hourly wage. If an employer wishes to file an LMIA for a high-wage worker, they need to submit a transition plan.  Whereas for a low-wage worker there is no requirement to submit a transition plan if the employer wants to hire them.
