WORK IN CANADA
Canada offers excellent career and personal growth opportunities
For Canadian employers to hire foreign workers through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program or as a Permanent Worker, a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is required.
A LMIA verifies that there is a need for a foreign worker and that no Canadians can do the job.
In some circumstances you may be eligible to apply for a work permit that is exempt from LMIA.
