Labour market impact assessments lawyers help with these assessments which are also known as LMIAs. For most Temporary Foreign Workers wishing to move to and work in Canada, a valid Labour Market Impact Assessment from a potential employer is the key eligibility requirement for a work permit. The Labour Market Impact Assessment lawyers at Kahane Law Office are here to help.
Who Applies for a Labour Market Impact Assessment?
Applying for and receiving a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment is the responsibility of the employer in Canada. The fees, preparation of documentation, and submission of the application is the responsibility of the employer wishing to employ a Temporary Foreign Worker. Temporary foreign workers can only be used for a position that an employer cannot find a suitable Canada Citizen or Permanent Resident to fill. The Labour Market Impact Assessment is used as proof that this is the case. Labour market impact assessment lawyers help minimize the possibility of a rejected application, save you time, and can help bring in your foreign workers faster.
Labour Market Impact Assessments (previously called Labour Market Opinions) look at the labour market in the area of Canada from which the employer has made an application. Using a number of assessment factors, Service Canada issues decisions on whether there is a shortage of a particular occupation in a certain area of Canada. Labour market impact assessment lawyers help you negotiate the process of these applications.
The Labour Market Impact Assessment Process
Should Service Canada issue a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment, they will notify the employer of this decision in writing. Once the employer has obtained this approval, they can then notify the potential Temporary Foreign Worker by sending them a copy of this approval. Using a lawyer for this application is a good step to ensuring that the application is put forward professionally so that there are fewer complications.
Once in possession of this positive decision by Service Canada, the Temporary Foreign Worker may then apply for a work permit, whether it is an original or extension of an existing permit.
Other Important Factors for Temporary Foreign Workers
A positive Labour Market Impact Assessment must not be seen as a guarantee for a Temporary Foreign Worker to obtain a work permit. There are a number of other areas Citizenship and Immigration Canada will assess the applicant under before issuing a work permit, which can include criminality, financial ability, medical, and other aspects. With exceptional experience, our labour market impact assessment lawyers and specialists help present an exceptional application.
