Obtaining a work permit to work in Canada is typically a two-step process. It begins with the Canadian employer submitting an application for Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). Additionally, they have to provide a comprehensive list of Canadians who applied for the same position and the ones who interviewed for it. They have to furnish a detailed explanation of the reasons why these candidates were not hired. Employers may also be inspected for compliance after the work permit is issued.
