Hire foreign workers
How to offer a full-time job to hire a foreign worker or support a skilled worker’s immigration to Canada.
Hire permanent workers
If you have gaps in your workforce and can’t find qualified candidates, consider hiring a foreign skilled worker on a permanent basis.
In most cases, employers require government approval before hiring a foreign worker now called a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), formerly known as a Labour Market Opinion (LMO). An LMIA is issued by Service Canada in cases where a Canadian employer is unable to fill the position with a local Canadian worker. The main means of demonstrating this is through advertising the jobs in Canada and making efforts to hire Canadians, proving that the applicants are not qualified for the position offered. Please visit LMIA Work Permits to learn more about obtaining a positive LMIA.
Express Entry is a system used to manage applications for these immigration programs:
- the Federal Skilled Worker Program
- the Federal Skilled Trades Program
- the Canadian Experience Class
- a portion of the Provincial Nominee Program
If you’re a Canadian employer with a business outside Quebec, you can hire Express Entry candidates to meet your needs when you can’t find Canadians or permanent residents to fill job vacancies.
You can use the same recruiting and hiring practices you use now. In some cases, you also have access to candidates through private sector job boards and Provincial Nominee Programs. Job Bank has also introduced a matching function to connect eligible employers with Express Entry candidates.
Our outreach officers, located across Canada, can explain how Express Entry works and how you can support an employee’s application through Express Entry with a valid job offer.

Atlantic Immigration Pilot
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot helps you hire qualified candidates for jobs you haven’t been able to fill locally. These candidates can be overseas or living in Canada temporarily.
There are 3 programs you can use to hire someone:
- Atlantic International Graduate Program
- Atlantic High-skilled Program
- Atlantic Intermediate-skilled Program
Each program has requirements that you and the candidate must meet.
Before you make a job offer, you must be designated by the provincial government of the Atlantic province where the candidate will be working.
Once you make a job offer, you and the candidate will work through several steps. If you and the candidate meet all the requirements, the candidate gets permanent resident status in Canada.
Our outreach officers can help you understand how the Atlantic Immigration Pilot works.
You don’t need a Labour Market Impact Assessment for the Atlantic Immigration Pilot programs.

The process to apply to study in Canada was very difficult and confusing for me, until my friend told me about Uniglobe Immigration… They helped me get my college admission, study permit and also my husband’s work permit in a short period of time. Mr. Ranjbar applied to the best study options that I could have had and it saved me thousands of dollars. The best thing was that they were always approachable and gave quick replies to every query. Also, they are very genuine, careful, attentive and professional. I am really thankful to Uniglobe Immigration and especially to Mr. Ranjbar who turned my immigration case into a success in a very short time.
