Exemptions from the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) are possible for specific, limited situations through agreements between the Government of Canada and provinces/territories.
Where a job offer is needed, the employer will need to:
- submit an offer of employment to Citizenship and Immigration Canada using the Employer Portal, and
- pay the employer compliance fee.
See a list of active LMIA exemptions from federal-provincial/territorial agreements.
