Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP): Negative Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) Employers List
This list excludes all personal names, such as employers of caregivers or business names that use or include personal names. For this reason, the list is not complete and does not reflect all employers who requested or received an LMIA.
The data provided in this report tracks temporary foreign worker (TFW) positions on negative Labour Market Impact Assessments, which means that the employer did not meet all of the TFWP requirements.
Overall, if an assessment indicates that hiring a TFW will not have a positive or neutral impact on the Canadian labour market, a negative LMIA will be issued. Specific reasons for a negative assessment could include, but are not limited to:
•the employer was not able to demonstrate a reasonable employment need;
•the employer has not demonstrated sufficient efforts to recruit, hire or train Canadians or permanent residents for the position;
•the employer did not offer a wage consistent with the occupation being requested;
•the employer is not adhering to federal/provincial/territorial regulations and/or agreements;
•there is evidence that the entry of a foreign national would impact a pending labour dispute involving Canadians in the requested occupation;
•the employer was not able to demonstrate the ability to fulfil the terms of the job offer;
•the employer was not able to demonstrate that they are actively engaged in the business related to the job offer; and/or
•the employer did not comply with the requirements or conditions set out in previous positive LMIAs and annexes.
Note: Effective February 2018, Employment and Social Development Canada's (ESDC) Foreign Worker System changed to the LMIA System. LMIAs in support of Permanent Residence (PR) are excluded from TFWP statistics reporting, unless reported separately. This may impact statistics reported over time. Country of citizenship information are replaced with country of residence information, reflecting current data collection policies of the LMIA System.
