This Week’s Success Story: Tackling Labor Shortage with Successful LMIA Applications
A Canadian-based multinational company contacted us to inquire about how to employ foreign workers due to ongoing labour shortage in the mining industry. The company specializes in surface drilling with global operations in over 10 countries. Despite continuous efforts in recruiting and retaining local employees, it has more projects underway than it can undertake and as such is in urgent need of additional employees to staff up the drilling teams in different positions. Our experienced business immigration lawyer analyzed the business needs and discussed different options with the Canadian employer. After diligently preparing the applications, we submitted a high-wage Labour Market Impact Assessment (“LMIA”) and low-wage LMIA application on behalf of the company for two different positions. Both LMIA applications were approved within one month. We were very pleased with the timely approval of the two applications!
