Employers – Immigration

Are you an employer looking for some expert guidance to manage your foreign workers? Whether you own a small or large business, we have the tools to help you hire foreign workers, maintain their status in Canada, and processes to ensure you stay compliant with government regulations.

Here is an example of the services we provide:

Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)

  • LMIA applications for low-skilled workers
  • LMIA applications for high-skilled workers
  • LMIA applications to support a foreign national’s permanent resident visa application (PLMIA for Express Entry)

The LMIA process is becoming increasingly complex and administratively heavy. What started as a simple multi-page application several years ago has evolved into an extensive 50+ page case submission. Our team will guide you through the entire LMIA process, from posting proper ads, to tips on how to track candidates, to application submission, to interview preparation. What sets our experts apart, is the level of hands-on experience we’ve had. We believe that the most important part of the LMIA process is the interview, and as we have been employers ourselves, we can tell you first-hand what Immigration Officers will scrutinize during the interview, what questions to expect, and how to increase your chances of receiving a positive LMIA.

 

LMIA-Exempt Workers

  • Intracompany transferee packages
  • NAFTA professional packages
  • NAFTA business visitor letters
  • Provincial nominations and nominee certificate holders
  • Young Professionals for International Experience Canada

 

Employer Compliance Reviews

  • Internal audit checks

There is a 1 in 4 chance that an employer can be selected for an audit or inspection. This applies not only to workers hired through a positive LMIA, but also include LMIA-exempt workers such as NAFTA Professionals, Intra-Company Transferees, and generally any time an employer has supported a foreign worker in obtaining a work permit. How compliant is your company, and can your business avoid administrative and monetary penalties?
