This is an important document that allows a Canadian employer (either a citizen or a permanent resident) to hire a foreign worker. As an employer, you must receive and give a copy of the positive LMIA to the prospective employee to begin the work permit application. You must be successful in proving your need to hire the foreign worker and your inability to find a local employee that fits your requirements or that is willing to accept the job you offer. Applying for an LMIA can be challenging. This is why Canadian employers come to us to seek assistance.
After your potential employer gives you a copy of the positive LMIA, the next thing you do as a temporary foreign worker is to apply for a work permit in Canada. Prepare all the documents you need. Provide all the information being asked. However, you must make sure that you are consistent with your information and that your papers are all complete to avoid issues from arising. To make your work permit application stress-free, get help from our expert immigration consultants.
Always take note of the expiry date of your work permit. Apply for a work permit extension 90 days prior to expiration to avoid losing your status. Let us assist you in this matter.
You lose your status when you fail to extend your work permit. You can file for restoration of status 90 days from the date you lose your status. However, you still need to check your eligibility. Applying for the restoration of status can be challenging. Speak with our professional immigration consultants now.
