Though there are different means of obtaining Work Permit Visa for Canada, but the most common way is thru the Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) in which the Canadian employer wishing to hire a foreign worker must first receive government approval before the hiring can take place.

In order to receive a positive LMIA, the Canadian government employee reviewing an application must determine that the hiring of a foreign worker will have a positive or neutral effect on the Canadian labor market. Among other factors, it must be clear that no qualified Canadians were passed up in favor of the foreign worker, and that the foreign worker will be given a salary and benefits that meet federal and provincial standards.

The LMIA process is different depending on whether the targeted employee is classified as “high-wage” or “low-wage”. Temporary foreign workers being paid under the provincial/territorial median wage are considered low-wage, while those being paid at or above are considered high-wage. Depending on whether a prospective employee is classified as high-wage or low-wage, certain specific provisions apply.

Generally speaking, all Canadian employers must provide evidence that they have attempted to find qualified Canadian citizens or permanent residents to fill job positions before turning to foreign workers. In addition, employers may be inspected for compliance to government regulations after their employee has begun working in Canada.

Therefore, in order to apply for the Work Permit Visa the prospects will need to have a job offer from a company in Canada based on the above criteria.
