A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a document that an employer in Canada must usually get before hiring a foreign worker.

A positive LMIA will show that there is a need for a foreign worker to fill the job and that no Canadian worker can do the job. A positive LMIA is sometimes called a Confirmation letter.

Your proposed employer must contact Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). ESDC will provide details on the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) application process.

 

Do you need an LMIA?

There are two ways you can find out if you need an LMIA. You can review the list of LMIA exemption codes yourself, or you can contact an International Mobility Worker Unit for help.

 

Review the LMIA exemption codes

  • Go to the Labour Market Impact Assessment exemption codes table, and review the list of regulations.
  • Select the LMIA exemption code that seems most relevant to your hiring situation, and read the detailed description provided.
  • Take note of the exemption code that applies to you. You will need to include this code in your offer of employment.

If you need help determining if you need an LMIA, contact the International Mobility Worker Unit for your province or territory.

 

Contact an International Mobility Worker Unit

International Mobility Worker Units (IMWU) help employers determine if the temporary worker they want to hire is exempt from the LMIA process or exempt from a work permit.

If you believe an LMIA or work permit exemption applies to your situation, you can request an opinion from an IMWU if the temporary worker is

from a visa-exempt country; and
currently outside of Canada.
If the temporary worker you want to hire is not from a visa-exempt country or is already in Canada, the processing officer reviewing their work permit application will determine if an LMIA exemption applies to their situation.

The border services officer at the point of entry will consider the opinion given by the unit when the temporary worker applies for their work permit. The opinion does not guarantee entry into Canada.

Requested information and supporting documents must be submitted to the IMWU at least 30 days before the date that the worker plans to enter Canada.

You can reach the IMWU serving your province or territory by email.
