The Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), previously called the "LMO," is a crucial document for Canadian employers looking to hire foreign workers. In most cases, obtaining an LMIA is necessary. A positive LMIA, also referred to as a "confirmation letter," demonstrates the employer's need for a foreign worker to fill a specific job position. Additionally, it confirms that no Canadian worker or permanent resident is available to perform the job.
Once an employer successfully obtains the LMIA, the worker can proceed to apply for a work permit. In order to apply, the worker will need several important documents. These include a job offer letter from the employer, a contract outlining the terms of employment, a copy of the LMIA obtained by the employer, and the specific LMIA number associated with the job position. These documents are crucial for the worker's work permit application process.
