LMIA exempt applications:
International Mobility Program (IMP)

The International Mobility Program lets Canadian employers hire temporary workers without a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). Multiple available streams serve Canada’s broader economic and cultural interests. Positions exempt from requiring an LMIA are those which:

  1. Provide certain broad economic, cultural, or other competitive advantages for Canada, and
  2. Provide reciprocal benefits for Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
