Information about LMIA’s

If you are an employer who wants to hire a foreign national, chances are you will need a labor market impact assessment (LMIA). A labor market impact assessment is an application to Canadian Immigration Services (CIC) all on its own and it must be submitted by the employer. It is an important step in the process of hiring a temporary foreign worker, as an LMIA ensures the temporary foreign worker will not be taking a job away from a Canadian looking for employment. Therefore, in this article, you will learn relevant information regarding the LMIA.

Who Needs an LMIA

What is an LMIA

If you are a Canadian employer who is looking to hire a foreign national to fill a position temporarily, the government may allow you to do this. However, it is important for the Canadian government to ensure Canadians have access to jobs in Canada, before those positions are filled by foreign individuals. In order to prevent foreign nationals from taking positions from Canadians who need them, the Canadian government has set the requirement for foreign nationals and their employers to obtain a labor market impact assessment (LMIA), prior to being able to obtain a work permit.

New Job Match Service Requirement for Canadian Employers
New Requirement for Canadian Employers for Inviting Applicants

For Canadian employers looking to hire a temporary foreign worker through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP), they will now be required to invite candidates who acquire a number of stars in relation to the position. As of August 28, 2017, there will be a new rating system in which employers will be matched with workers registered in the Canadian government’s Job Bank. The Canadian government has named this new feature its Job Match Service. In this article, I will address the new changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) and how this ultimately affects Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) applications.

New Job Match Service

The purpose of the new Job Match service is to permit Canadian employers to view anonymous profiles of registered job seekers. The profiles of these job seekers reflect and coordinate with the skills and job requirements that are listed in the employer’s job posting. These matches will essentially be rated under a 5-star system. Therefore, the more stars that the job seeker can accumulate for the intended position, the greater the compatibility with the Canadian employer.
