Canadian businesses wishing to hire overseas workers need to do more than just make a written Offer of employment to foreign national.
Any job offer made to a foreign worker must be processed by Service Canada. SC considers various factors and provides Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), depending upon the purpose.
There are 2 types of processes, depending upon the type of the worker.
Temporary workers – Work permit – Labour Market Impact Assessment. These workers come to Canada to fulfil specific short-term labour shortage. Their entry into Canada is for temporary period only, on a Work permit. SC issues a Labour Market Opinion (LMO) for temporary employment.
Permanent workers – These workers come to Canada as Permanent Residents. A permanent job offer supports their application with additional points and can often lead to faster selection. Please refer to Qualifying job Offer.
Transcend can help such businesses in their endeavour. We provide various levels of services to Canadian businesses for Employment authorizations.
