Through the IMP program, the LMIA provides clarification on the restrictions that govern the temporary employment of foreign nationals in Canada.
Canada's labor market impact assessments are being conducted.
ESDC is responsible for issuing a document known as a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), which is a document that evaluates the impact that hiring a foreign worker will have on the labor market in Canada. Because a positive LMIA implies that there is no Canadian citizen or permanent resident who is qualified to fill a post, it gives an employer the opportunity to hire a foreign national of their choosing.
A negative labor market impact assessment (LMIA) suggests that a post ought to be filled by a citizen or permanent resident of Canada.

A program in Canada that facilitates international mobility.
Employers in Canada are permitted to hire temporary foreign workers through the International Mobility Program (IMP), which eliminates the requirement for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). In spite of the fact that the majority of businesses that hire foreign workers will be required to have an LMIA, there are several situations in which an LMIA exemption is possible. The following conditions must be met in order to qualify for certain LMIA exemptions:
the wider economic, cultural, or other competitive advantages that Canada possesses, as well as the reciprocal benefits that Canadians and permanent residents enjoy.
