LMIA in Edmonton
An LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment) is a document an employer may need before hiring a foreign worker in Canada. Preferred Personnel submits LMIA applications in Edmonton frequently. It confirms a foreign worker’s need to fill a job that can’t be filled by an existing Canadian resident.
The purpose of LMIAs is to protect the Canadian labour market and to protect Temporary Foreign Workers who come to Canada to live and work. The Canadian Government must approve LMIA applications before a foreign worker can begin work.
LMIA applications can be complicated and time-consuming. They often require extensive communication with government agencies such as the IMWU (International Mobility Worker Unit) and TFWP (Temporary Foreign Worker Program). Our Edmonton LMIA immigration experts can help you quickly and easily fill out an LMIA application for the best chance of approval.

Businesses recruiting sincerely in a particular field or for an extended period often choose to apply for an LMIA pre-approval. Its intention is for businesses expecting to hire foreign workers or foreign workers soon.
An LMIA pre-approval is an approval “in principle.” Essentially, it is an approval for hiring a foreign worker for the position. Upon a successful LMIA pre-approval, foreign workers get recruited to fill a given position in hopes of being accepted. However, LMIA pre-approvals are not person-specific. Once a temporary foreign worker receives an offer for the position, you must apply for a person-specific LMIA and be successful. We’re always available to answer questions about the difference between typical LMIAs and pre-approvals, and we can help you determine which will be more beneficial for your business.
Streamline Your Hiring Processes
A pre-approval allows a business to recruit extensively or for a more extended period. Though related to an LMIA, pre-approvals may vary significantly from a standard LMIA application. Our LMIA services can make the pre-approval process simple and easy.
