ESDC will assess the employer’s LMIA application to determine the impact of hiring a temporary foreign worker on Canada’s job market. A positive or negative LMIA letter will be issued to the employer by ESDC. Your employer should give you a copy of this letter to include with your work permit application.
For many skilled foreign workers from around the world, working in Canada is an attractive option. Nearly 200,000 foreign skilled workers arrive in Canada each year on Temporary Canadian Work Permits. You can be one of them!
