Are you filing your LMIA assessment and unsure if you have taken all the necessary steps!! If so, watch our video to find out the steps you will need to take as the employer to obtain a successful Labour Market Impact Assessment from Service Canada.

LMIA Assessment

When applying for the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) one of the crucial documents is the advertising or posting. In order to ensure that you have posted correctly you have to look at the National Occupation Code (NOC) that is being used which is attached to the job title and job description. As the employer you have to ensure that the NOC or the job that you are offering the applicant also matches the prevailing wage and other criteria such as posting the position in which the Canadian citizen or permanent residents can look at first and see if this is a job that they can apply for.

When doing a posting you are not only looking at the prevailing wage, job description or job duties but also how you can make that position standout in the region you are advertising. The purpose is to advertise the position to Canadian or Permanent Residents first prior to offering the job to a foreign worker. For instance, let say as the employer you are offer a prevailing wage of $20 per hour for the foreign worker to demonstrate you have put effort into hiring a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident is by increasing the wage. When you increase the wage it demonstrates to the immigration officer that as the employer you have done everything you could do to hire a eligible Canadian for the position but were unsuccessful. So by increasing the wage or posting the position for a little bit longer than 4 weeks demonstrates to Service Canada that you done everything you can to reach out to Canadians.

You have to keep in mind that these statistics that service Canada has on a particular region could potentially be outdated or it might not be completely accurate. For example the position that you are offering may be in a remote area and possibly not updated by statistics Canada. So it will work towards your advantage by keeping the posting up for a bit longer, increasing the salary, posting to additional websites so that you can argue you have done everything to hire a Canadian citizen or permanent resident for the position but were unsuccessful and have no choice but to hire a foreign worker.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.
