There are two ways to find out if you need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA):
- you can review the list of LMIA exemption codes yourself, or
- you can contact an International Mobility Worker Unit (IMWU) for help.
You can request an opinion from an IMWU if you think a temporary worker does not need an LMIA or a work permit, as long as the temporary worker is:
- from a visa-exempt country, and
- currently outside of Canada.
