Understanding Labour Market Impact Assessment statistics: This release displays quarterly Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) statistics related to applications, positions, geographical location, occupations, sectors, streams and foreign workers by country of origin. It is important to note that the decision to issue a work permit rests with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and that not all positions on a positive LMIA result in a work permit. As well, there may also be a time delay between the date the temporary foreign worker (TFW) obtains the work permit and the date they enter Canada. For these reasons, data provided in the LMIA statistics cannot be used to calculate the number of TFWs that have entered or will enter Canada.
This list excludes all personal names, such as employers of caregivers or business names that use or include personal names. For this reason, the list is not complete and does not reflect all employers who requested or received an LMIA. The data provided in this report tracks temporary foreign worker (TFW) positions on negative Labour Market Impact Assessments, which means that the employer did not meet all of the TFWP requirements. Overall, if an assessment indicates that hiring a TFW will not have a positive or neutral impact on the Canadian labour market, a negative LMIA will be issued.
A positive LMIA will be issued by Service Canada if an assessment indicates that hiring a temporary foreign worker (TFW) will have a positive or neutral impact on the Canadian labour market. A positive LMIA must be obtained by an employer before hiring a TFW for a specific occupation. This list excludes all personal names, such as employers of caregivers or business names that use or include personal names. For this reason, the list is not complete and does not reflect all employers who requested or received an LMIA.
