When a company intends to hire a foreign worker, they are required to receive a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) first, confirming that the foreign worker is indispensable and that reasonable efforts were made to hire a Canadian citizen or permanent resident first. LMIA's are received by the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) which is responsible for social programs and the labour market at the federal level.
The LMIA Owner Operator is a variant of this endeavour. Foreign candidates who wish to purchase a controlling interest in a business and aim to be actively involved in the daily operations of the business are able to apply. These candidates may receive a positive LMIA without advertising the position if the arrangement will result in a neutral or positive impact to the overall business and labour market.
As part of the application, a business plan is considered to be a critical part of the application. A business plan needs to outline the vision and background of the applicant, explaining the expansion plans for the purchased business while proving that the business will create a positive impact to the region. Our LMIA Owner Operator business plans meet all the critical requirements as defined by the ESDC, while providing you with a business plan that sets you up for success upon landing in Canada.
