Employer-Specific Work Permit (LMIA-Based)

At Flagstaff Immigration, we recognize the importance of fostering global talent partnerships through the Employer-Specific Work Permit, often referred to as the LMIA-Based Work Permit. This pathway allows Canadian employers to hire foreign workers when there is a demonstrated need, contributing to the growth of both businesses and the national economy. Here’s a closer look at how the process unfolds

Labour Market Assessment (LMIA): Unlocking Employment Opportunities

  1. Employer Requirement: Canadian employers seeking to hire a foreign worker may require a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). This assessment helps determine the genuine need for a foreign worker and confirms that no suitable Canadian permanent resident or citizen is available to fill the position.
  2. Positive LMIA: Once the LMIA is approved, it is referred to as a “positive LMIA.” This signifies that the foreign worker is indeed necessary to fulfill the role and that there are no suitable local candidates available.
  3. Confirmation Letter: A positive LMIA is also known as a confirmation letter, underscoring the endorsement of the foreign worker’s employment.

Key Documents for the Work Permit Application:

  1. Job Offer Letter: A formal job offer from the Canadian employer outlining the terms and conditions of employment.
  2. Employment Contract: A detailed contract that elaborates on the nature of the job, responsibilities, compensation, and other pertinent aspects of the employment.
  3. Copy of LMIA: A copy of the approved Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) demonstrating the necessity of hiring a foreign worker.
  4. LMIA Number: The specific LMIA number associated with the approved assessment.
