Labour Market Impact Assessment

June 16, 2015
If you’re looking to hire a foreign nanny, one of the first steps you will have to do is fill out a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
What exactly is a Labour Market Assessment? Essentially, it’s a document that an employer (in this case such as a nanny agency or a family) must receive before being able to hire a foreign worker (such as a nannyhousekeeper, or caregiver). If you receive a positive LMIA, you will have shown that there is a need for the foreign worker as a Canadian is not available to do the job. A positive LMIA may come in the form of a confirmation letter which confirms that this is the case.
Families can hire a foreign caregiver to provide care in a private residence, to children, seniors or individuals with medical needs, when Canadians and permanent residents are not available.
