Frequently Asked Questions

When is an LMIA needed?

An LMIA is a document issued by the Canadian Government to assess the impact of hiring a foreign worker on the Canadian labour market. The LMIA is a crucial component of the hiring process and is required in most cases before a Canadian employer can hire a foreign worker. The LMIA process requires you to justify the hiring of a foreign worker and its positive or neutral impact on the Canadian labour market.

However, certain job categories may be exempt due to international agreements or industry exemptions. The International Mobility Program (IMP), is one such exception which allows employers to hire temporary foreign workers without an LMIA. Other exceptions include those coming to Canada on an open work permit or as part of an intra-company transfer.

What happens when the LMIA application is refused?

When a Labour Market Impact Assessment application is refused, the Canadian government has determined that the job offer does not meet the requirements for hiring a foreign worker. This can happen for various reasons, such as the inability to prove a genuine need for a foreign worker to fill the job or failure to demonstrate that efforts have been made to hire Canadians or permanent residents first.

If you want to reapply, you must address the issues that led to the refusal. This might involve providing additional documentation, revising the job advertisement, increasing the offered wage to meet or exceed the prevailing wage, or demonstrating more thoroughly that no Canadian worker is available. After addressing the issues identified in the refusal letter, you can prepare and submit a new LMIA application.

What is the processing time for an LMIA application?

The processing time for an LMIA application varies depending on several factors, including the type of application, the specific industry or sector, the location of the job, and the overall demand for LMIAs at the time of the application. Generally, processing times can range from a few weeks to several months if the candidate meets the requirements.

For how long is an LMIA valid?

An LMIA is typically valid for six months from the date of issue, meaning the employer has six months to use the LMIA to hire a foreign worker. Within this period, the foreign worker must apply for their work permit, using the LMIA as part of their application.

Who is responsible for paying the LMIA fees?

The employer is legally responsible for paying the LMIA application fee. This fee cannot be passed on to the foreign worker.
