LMIA Positive

A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a document that an employer in Canada needs before hiring a foreign worker.

The main purpose of a positive LMIA is to demonstrate that a foreign worker is needed to fill a particular job and there is no Canadian worker or permanent resident available to do it.

Sometimes a positive LMIA is called a Letter of Confirmation and is requested directly by the Canadian employer or employer. Once the positive LMIA is obtained, the foreign worker can apply for a work permit.
