LMIA (Labor Market Impact Assessment) formerly known as LMO (Labor Market Opinion)

A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a document that an employer in Canada may need to get before hiring a foreign worker. A positive LMIA will show that there is a need for a foreign worker to fill the job. It will also show that no Canadian worker is available to do the job. A positive LMIA is sometimes called a confirmation letter. For more detailed information on LMIA, Click here and, we will get back to you in next 24 hours
