Being a Canadian means that you have a priority access to the national labour market. No foreign specialist is to be allowed to work in Canada if there's a high risk that he will steal the job from a prospective Canadian employee.
In most cases Human Resources and Skills Development Canada is responsible for determinig the impact that hiring a foreign worker may have on the labour market. Their verdict is called the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
It is the employer's responsibility to apply for an LMIA when hiring a foreign worker is required. The application must contain information and documents to demonstrate, that:
As with any other application, experience is of an essence. Ours allows us to follow best practices in the industry and achieve good results when applying for an LMIA. We prepare the application and closely follow it throughout the process, keeping the employer updated at all times.
And as with any other application, we officially represent our clients before the authorities, be it HRSDC or CIC.
