Impact Assessment

Hire a Temporary Foreign Worker

A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a document that an employer in Canada may need to get before hiring a foreign worker. LMIA’s are issued by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and assess whether there is a benefit in hiring temporary foreign workers on the Canadian labour market.

The LMIA application process depends on the type of program you’re hiring through. The different types of LMIA’s are:

The wage being offered for the position will determine if you need to apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) under the stream for high-wage positions or the stream for low-wage positions, each with their own requirements.

A positive LMIA shows that there is a need for a foreign worker and that no Canadian or permanent resident is available to do the job. If the employer has received a positive decision on the LMIA application, they can move on to hiring temporary foreign workers who will have to apply for work permits.

Complete professional service! All I hear and read in the news is about how long the immigration process is in Canada. But Charlene and her team at AIPS completed our sponsorship for my wife’s permanent residency in record time!!! This is obviously due to their attention to detail and utmost professionalism. Thank you AIPS! I want to recommend Charlene to anyone looking for help in the daunting process involved in an immigration application. Well done!!

Review Vaishakh

We consulted Charlene for our Spouse Open Work Permit. She and Veruska guided us through the entire procedure gracefully with professionalism. The best thing about them is they reach out to us, whenever there is a delay in uploading documents, biometrics or medical from our side. Such dedication to their job is worth commendable. Special thanks to Veruska who ensured all our documents get uploaded and submitted on time, when Charlene was unavailable. Thanks to their service, we got PPR within two months. Keep up the good work. I highly recommend AIPS for any immigration consultation.
