How difficult it will be to offer a job in Canada to a foreigner?

Discussion in 'Canadian Labour Legislation' started by zworks, Aug 18, 2016.

  1. Hi,

    I am working for a Canadian employer as a web developer, from my home.

    I am planning to ask him to offer me a job, so that it will be easy for me to apply for PR.

    Now my concern is whether he will be happy to do that or not.

    Does offering a job to a foreigner contains a lot of hassle? I know there are some procedures to be done.

    But how difficult it's? My employer has his own company in Montreal which he runs for years. What're the chances he will be ok to give me a job offer?

    Thanks for your opinions.
  2. He will need to obtain something called an LMIA. A job offer isn't enough to help you with immigration - the LMIA is mandatory as well.

    The LMIA is a pretty big deal. It will require your employer to spend money on advertising and complete a fair amount of paperwork. Having said that, by all means ask and see if he's willing to go through the LMIA process.

    If all he's able to give you is the job offer itself - don't bother. A job offer alone is useless.
