LMIA Types of Documents
If you are looking at filing a Labour Market Impact Assessment, then there are three main documents that you should have even before you submit it. The first document is the actual posting. You have to ensure you have a strong application posted, so that Canadian citizens and permanent residents have the first opportunity to see your job posting and have a chance to be employed. If the posting is not done right Service Canada will refuse your LMIA.
You have to ensure you’re using the right NOC the right job description, the salary, if there is frequent travel, mention that, if there many locations mention that, keep in mind, a particular region itself. If the region is in a remote region where the job is being offered, you could be a little more flexible with your salary and so forth, however regardless remote or not remote the salary has to be of the prevailing wage of a particular medium. Having a salary for that region that is considered low most likely that application will be returned to you or refused. If it’s refused in a region that as high demand like Toronto, you might want to consider posting with a higher salary, even beyond that medium, higher than that NOC, this way you can argue that despite posting a salary that is higher than the regular NOC requested in that region you were not able to get a qualified Canadian citizen, or permanent residence to apply for the position.
The second document is you have to outline with Service Canada why the permanent resident and the Canadian citizens were not the chosen candidate for the job post. Let’s say you do the posting and the posting comes down and fifty applicants will apply you definitely have to explain to service Canada why those candidates were not chosen, you can’t just leave that in the air for service |Canada to figure out, that’s an essential piece of the puzzle. Explain to Service Canada why the fifty candidates were not chosen and why the foreign worker has been chosen.
The third document which is very important and at times employers do make a fuss about this is corporate documents, a lot of companies contact us to evaluate the company, to find out if it’s a legitimate company here in Canada before they can approve a worker working for that company. So then whatever documents are required there isn’t much wiggle room, with regards to what service Canada wants with regards to what service Canada wants as to evaluate the company, if you are looking at filing a Labour Market Impact Assessment give us a call, we are here to help.
