With our end-to-end overseas career solutions, Masters Academy can help you find a job and apply for a Canadian Work Permit Visa

Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)

The Canadian employer must have successfully obtained a positive Labour Market Opinion before the employer can hire a foreign national to come to Canada on a work permit. Which means that the employer must first prove that the employer could not find a Canadian citizen or permanent resident to fill the job vacancy for which the employer is planning to recruit the foreign national.

How a Canada Job Offer Can Lead to Permanent Residence?

Canada encourages applications for Permanent Residence from people with skills, abilities, education and work experience that will contribute to the Canadian economy. If you have an LMIA you get an extra 50 points on your Express Entry score for a skilled worker and up to 200 points for an executive position.

Receiving a positive LMIA for an arranged employment offer does not allow a skilled foreign worker to automatically immigrate to Canada. In order for skilled foreign workers to become permanent residents, they must meet all the requirements under the Express Entry immigration process Fortunately, for IT professionals, this can easily be achieved because of the following reasons:

Requirement of specialized skills: IT professionals comes with a variety of skills. The term IT or “Information Technology” itself is a very broad term, and it applies to almost all industries across Canada. This provide IT/Tech professionals a lot of flexibility when they look for options to come to Canada on a work permit. Because it is often difficult to find Canadian citizens or permanent residents who meet the accurate requirements of the job for which the employer is looking to hire, it is comparatively easy for employers to obtain positive LMIAs (Labour Market Impact Assessments) for people who are IT/Tech professionals.

Universal nature: Technology is universal. Languages may change from one county to the other, but programming languages do not. Similarly, systems and technology hardly change from one country to the other, unlike banking, healthcare, etc. This mitigates one main risk that bothers many Canadian employers – cultural and/or linguistic differences and its implications in the workplace. Because of this fact, LMIA applications structured for IT/Tech workers are more likely to succeed.

Evolving nature of the IT industry: The IT industry is the world’s fastest growing and evolving industry. Because of this, it is a widely accepted fact that Canadian employers will be required to hire foreign workers to meet the need. This also contributes to knowledge-sharing by the foreign worker to Canadian citizens and/or permanent residents.
