LMIA is a document provided by the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) that claims the need for both foreign employees to fill the position and that no permanent resident or Canadian worker is unoccupied to do it.

Here are some jobs that don’t need the LMIA:

  1. Jobs that come along with international trade agreements.
  2. Jobs that are in agreement with the national and provincial governments.
  3. Jobs that are considered in the concerns of Canada

How to determine if a specific job position comes under the LMIA exceptions. There are two ways to find out.

Global Talent Stream provides work permits in two weeks

The employers can analyze the LMIA exception codes and the work permit exceptions, choose either the work permit or LMIA exception that is suitable to their job vacancies that need to be filled and go through the elaborated description to notice if there is an exception code that applies to them, or;

Get in touch with the International Mobility Workers Unit (IMWU) if they provide a job position for temporary foreign labor in another country whose citizens have visa exceptions.

The visa applications and work permits can be processed by The Global talent Stream (GTS) and a part of the (TFWP) within just two weeks.

The employers are allowed to welcome foreign citizens to fill vacant roles with the help of the Express Entry system that gets the applications related to immigration online.

The applicants who pass the eligibility criteria provide an online profile known as the Expression of interest (EOI), which is based on three national immigration programs or taking part in the provincial programs of the immigration, right to the pool of Express Entry.

The profiles of the candidates are then compared with others based on the points system, known as the Comprehensive ranking System (CRS). The candidates who score the highest points are taken under consideration for ITAs to attain permanent residence. All candidates who receive an ITA are supposed to submit the entire application quickly following the processing fees within 90 days.
