Labour Market Impact Assessment
In most cases, obtaining a work permit for Canada isn’t easy because employers must firstly prove that there are no qualified Canadians that are willing, ready, and able to work the proposed position.
The rigorous qualifying process is referred to as a Labour Market Impact Assessment or LMIA. The LMIA is part of a larger exercise whereby employers must advertise in several sources, fill out an application, submit corresponding fees, and allow service Canada to decide whether hiring foreign workers is justified.
Port To Port Immigration Services will handle the entire process for you. We post your job ads, screen your applicants and submit applications on your behalf. Our LMIA approval rates are nearing 100%
Atlantic Immigration Pilot Project
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Project was created with the intention to attract skilled workers to Atlantic Canada. The program is employer driven and its objective is to match job seekers with employment opportunities throughout the four Atlantic Provinces.
In principle, a candidate is eligible for residency if they have the following minimum requirements including, highschool education, an official English test score, and a minimum of one year work experience.
In practice, obtaining education, language and job experience within a candidate is a difficult combination. Port To Port Immigration Service will screen applicants for experience, and all the requirements needed for Canadian residency
Generally, immigration is the responsibility of the federal government. As an exception to that rule, Provincial nomination gives. Provinces and local employers the ability to attract candidates wanting to settle in a particular region. Depending on the occupation applicants can apply directly to the province, or get support from an employer by obtaining a job offer. To improve employee retention, Provincial Nomination is a great way to transition temporary foreign workers(TFW) into permanent residents.
