Frequently Asked Questions

Who needs an LMIA in Canada?

Canadian companies looking to hire skilled workers from abroad require a Local Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). The LMIA process requires a Canadian company to justify the hiring of a foreign worker and its positive or neutral impact on the Canadian labour market.

Some job categories are exempt from needing an LMIA due to international agreements or industry exemptions, such as the International Mobility Program (IMP). Other exceptions include those coming to Canada as part of an intra-company transfer or on an open work permit.

How long does it take to process an LMIA application?

The processing time for an LMIA application depends on several factors, including the industry, the type of application, the location of the job in Canada, and the number of LMIA applications being processed at the time. Generally, processing times can range from a few weeks to several months if the candidate meets all the LMIA requirements.

What are the requirements for an LMIA?

The requirements for an LMIA generally involve several key components to ensure that the employment of a foreign worker will not adversely affect Canadian workers. 

  • Proof of business legitimacy: Employers must provide documentation to prove that their business is legitimate and operates according to Canadian laws. 
  • Job offer details: The employer must submit a detailed job offer that outlines the duties, wages, working conditions, and employment terms that comply with Canadian labour standards.
  • Recruitment efforts: Employers need to demonstrate that they have made significant efforts to recruit qualified Canadian workers (citizens or permanent residents) before seeking foreign nationals. 
  • Wages and working conditions: The wages offered must meet or exceed the prevailing wage for the occupation in the region where the work will be performed. Working conditions must also meet the current standards set by Canadian employment laws.
  • Benefits to Canada: Employers may need to demonstrate how hiring a foreign worker will benefit the Canadian labour market and economy.
  • Compliance history: If the employer has hired foreign workers in the past, their compliance with previous LMIA terms and conditions may be reviewed.
  • Processing fee: There is a processing fee for each LMIA application, which must be paid by the employer.
