Process and Timeline of an LMIA Application

Phase 1: Document Gathering and Review

We share the document checklist with the employer. Employer provides business and financial information to be able to prove their financial ability to afford the employee. We do thorough due diligence on the documentation as that ensures smooth sailing ahead.

Timeline: ~2 weeks

Phase 2: Job Advertisements & LMIA application preparation

We prepare the job advertisement and after approval from the employer post it on multiple portals. We also create a job bank profile for the employer. The job postings have to be active for at least 40 days. Simultaneously, we prepare the LMIA application

Timeline: 6 weeks

Phase 3: LMIA application submission

We review the LMIA application with the employer before submission. After submission, the employer may get a call from the relevant authority to check the validity of the application. We prepare the employer to ensure they answer all the questions correctly.

Timeline: Application approval timeline varies from 2 to 4 months

Phase 4: LMIA Approved

Once the LMIA is approved, the employee can go ahead and apply for their work permit through Flagpole or the online application. LMIA is usually valid for 1 year and the employee gets up to 2 years work permit

Timeline: Varies
