Foreign workers bring valuable knowledge, skills, and experience to companies across Canada. They are an important part of the Canadian economy and increase the potential pool of talent available to you.
As a company hiring foreign workers, ensuring everything goes smoothly is critical to the success of your business. Corporate immigration can be complex, and getting the necessary permits, visas, and documentation in order can be difficult and time-consuming. Whether your company needs to obtain a work permit for a newly hired employee or visas for international business visitors, time and accuracy are of the essence.
Before hiring a temporary foreign worker, you must receive a successful Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). This is a document from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) stating that an employer can hire a foreign worker.
In certain cases, you may be eligible for an exemption from the requirement to obtain a positive LMIA.
