LMIA Offering for Businesses

The Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a process in Canada that allows employers to hire foreign workers when there is a demonstrated need that cannot be filled by Canadian citizens or permanent residents. The LMIA is a vital component for businesses, as it enables you to bring in foreign workers to meet your specific labor requirements. At KVD Immigration Inc, we help you to utilize LMIA benefits and application process.

Benefits of LMIA for Businesses
  • Access to skilled workers
  • Businesses often require specialized skills that may not be readily available within the local labor market.
  • The LMIA offering allows businesses to access a global pool of skilled workers, enabling you to fill key positions and meet your business needs.
  • Business growth and competitiveness
  • Hiring foreign workers through the LMIA process can help businesses to expand their operations and remain competitive in the global marketplace. These workers bring diverse perspectives, experiences, and expertise, contributing to innovation and driving business growth.
  • The LMIA offering can be cost-effective for companies. Hiring foreign workers through the LMIA process can sometimes be more affordable than other options, such as recruiting domestically or providing extensive training to local workers.
  • International partnerships and market expansion Businesses often require personnel with knowledge of specific international markets or language skills to facilitate business operations abroad. The LMIA offering enables businesses to hire foreign workers who possess the necessary qualifications and cultural understanding, fostering international partnerships and facilitating market expansion.
Process of Obtaining LMIA for Businesses
  • Determine labor requirements
  • Identify the specific labor needs within your business. Determine the positions, skills, and qualifications required to meet those needs. It is important to demonstrate that efforts were made to hire Canadian citizens or permanent residents before turning to the LMIA process.
Apply for LMIA
  • Submit an application for LMIA to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) along with supporting documents, such as a detailed job description, recruitment efforts, and a Labour Market Benefits Plan (LMBP). The LMBP outlines the measures you will take to benefit the Canadian labor market.
Pay the processing fee
  • There is a processing fee associated with the LMIA application. Ensure that the fee is paid in full at the time of application submission.
Assessment by ESDC
  • ESDC will assess the LMIA application based on various factors, including the impact on the Canadian labor market, the genuineness of the job offers, and compliance with program requirements. They may request additional documentation or conduct an inspection of the workplace.
Receive the LMIA decision
  • ESDC will notify you of their decision regarding the LMIA application. If approved, you will receive a positive LMIA, which allows you to proceed with the hiring of foreign workers. If denied, the reasons for the refusal will be provided.
Hire foreign workers
  • Once you have obtained a positive LMIA, you can proceed with hiring foreign workers. The workers will need to apply for the necessary work permits or visas through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to legally work in Canada.
