Filling gaps in the Canadian labour market with the Temporary Foreign Worker Program

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program aims to address worker shortages in Canada.

About the LMIA

A LMIA provides EDSC with the information it needs to evaluate if there is a genuine need to hire a foreign worker and if doing so will have a positive, neutral, or negative impact on the Canadian labour market. If it is determined that there are Canadians or permanent residents already in Canada who could do the job, and are seeking employment, the request may be declined
