Before a Canadian employer can hire a foreign national / foreign worker, the company has to show the government that they tried to hire a local person but found no one who was suitable for the job, and that hiring a foreign national will not have a negative impact on the Canadian economy, and so on. The process of gathering this information and sending it to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) is the LMIA process.
If you are an Employer interested in hiring Foreign Nationals to manage ongoing labour shortages, we will help you understand the LMIA process and facilitate the application for you so that you can hire the number of workers that you need in the coming months to keep your business running smoothly.
If you are a Foreign National looking for employment in Canada, we will help you obtain the necessary Work Permit so that you can accept your Job Offer without delay.
Under some provincial programs and based on the worker’s skill, a Canadian company may be able to offer employment without completing the LMIA process. Moreover, you may be eligible to get a work permit as Post-Graduate student in Canada, coming for a Working Holiday in Canada, as the Spouse of a Canadian and so on.

Using this permit, a company or enterprise may bring certain employees from an office abroad to Canada, without the need for a LMIA.
