Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) Recruitment Service
The LMIA Recruitment Service is an additional service that helps business owners hire foreign workers by navigating through Labour Market Impact Assessments (LMIA) to either start the work permit or permanent residency process.
Need help finding workers for your business or obtaining work permits for existing employees? The Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) Recruitment Service can help if you:
Have employees that need work permits
Are looking to hire foreign employees for your business
The Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a document that employers might have to use before hiring a foreign worker. This assessment tells an employer whether or not their foreign worker can be employed or if there are Canadian workers or permanent residents that can. A positive LMIA means that the employer can hire their foreign worker because there are no Canadian or permanent resident workers available. Once the employer receives the positive LMIA, the employees can apply for a work permit. Employees may also apply for permanent residence after a LMIA approval, if they meet other requirements. This is typically done in the Express Entry system.
Almost all employers applying for LMIA are required to demonstrate their recruitment efforts of hiring Canadians. Note that Service Canada review recruitment efforts very closely and we recommend employers always hire a professional to fulfill this requirement.

How It Works
- 1Create An Account
Do an eligibility check, or pick a visa, or just sign up directly to create an account. Then you can see all the documents needed, questions you must answer, and fee payments for our services and to the government. If you have any questions, it is easy to contact our sales team or to schedule a call.
- 2Eligibility Confirmation Before Payment
First you will answer a few questions to ensure you are eligible for the visa. Only if you are eligible will the payment unlock. Making payment assigns an immigration lawyer or regulated consultant to your application. We are transparent in our process and pricing, and clearly list all the fees and processing times for your visa. Read our Transparency Pledge. We use Stripe for credit or debit card payment processing, which is secure and encrypted.
- 3Complete Your Application Online
You can complete as many of the application tasks you wish before payment. Take your time. Some visas require a lot of information, which requires answering questionnaires and uploading of documents. Our system ensures everything necessary is gathered depending on your situation - preventing errors and omissions - and saving you time.
- 4Visa Preparation and Submission
Once all the tasks are completed, our experts will review your answers and start preparing your application so that the best case is best presented. Government fees are also due once the application is completed and we can correctly calculate the government fees due. After a final review by you, and by our experts, your application will be submitted! You will have peace of mind that only comes with an accurate application.
- 5Approval and Renewals
We notify you when your visa is approved! If there are any questions or rejections from the government, we will answer them and resubmit without any further fees from us. We securely store your immigration documents for 7 years and provide alerts well before any expiry dates. Renewing or taking the next step toward citizenship is easy when all your immigration history is in one place.
Some documents you will need to provide, and some documents we may prepare for you.
