The Labor Market Impact Assessment or LMIA is a requirement before a Canadian employer (citizen and permanent residents) can hire a temporary foreign worker and before the temporary worker can apply for a work permit. It is submitted to the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
As an employer, you must prove that you need to hire a foreign child or an elderly care provider and that you can’t find any local worker appropriate to your needs or willing to take the job. In the process, you will have a bigger chance of obtaining a positive LMIA.
Filing a LMIA involves a very technical process. You must understand everything (including the job offer and other terms that should be included in the contract) and complete all the documents required or else, you only waste your time and money. This is why our clients ask for our assistance in this matter.
As a potential nanny or caregiver Canada, you must secure a copy of the positive LMIA soon as you find your potential employer. You will need this to apply for a work permit in Canada. However, this is not the only thing that is important. You must submit all the required documents, ensure truthfulness and consistency of the information you will provide, and prepare for an interview in the Canada visa office you applied to, in case you will be invited for one. Again, everything involves a very technical process. The assistance of experts like Sure Immigration is highly suggested to increase the chances of the approval of your work permit.
Take note of the expiry date of your work permit. If you wish to continue working as a care provider in Canada, you must file for a work permit renewal 90 days before it expires. Or else, you will not be able to continue working. Sure immigration also provides assistance in filing for a work permit extension to avoid losing your status.
Due to a valid reason or just plain negligence on your part, you forget to extend your work permit in Canada before it expires. Because of this, you lost your status. You must apply within 90 days from the time you lose your status. However, not everyone is able to apply for restoration of status in Canada. Know your eligibility to apply for a work permit extension. Be aware of the things that you should do. Talk to our expert immigration consultants.
As a nanny or caregiver who dreams of becoming a permanent resident in Canada, you must obtain a PR card to do so. However, applying for permanent residency is not easy. Truthfully, it involves a complex process. You need the guidance of our professional immigration consultant to improve your chances of getting a permanent resident card.
