If you’ve been hired by a Canadian company, you will need to ensure you are able to legally live and work in Canada for the duration of your contract. Before arriving in Canada you will need to have the required work permits and documentation.
Before entering Canada as a temporary foreign worker, your employer must apply for and receive a successful Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) <<Link to LMIA Page>>. This is a document from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) stating that an employer can hire a foreign worker. You must have this in order to apply for a work permit and legally work in Canada, though, in some cases, you may be eligible for an exemption and may not need a positive LMIA. We can help you understand your options and choose the best path for your situation.
