Which jobs received the most LMIAs in 2023?

Gaining Canadian work experience is a crucial part of the immigration journey for many newcomers, helping increase their eligibility for immigration while also improving their skills to reflect the labour market.

The ability to work in Canada is usually granted through a work permit, which allows holders to live and work in the country with temporary resident status. Newcomers who are looking to work in Canada, but do not have access to another kind of work permit may find value in pursuing a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) supported work permit.

An LMIA is the Canadian government’s assessment of the impact of hiring a foreign worker on the Canadian labour market. To be eligible to support a work permit application, the LMIA must return a positive, or neutral result—with a negative result making the position ineligible for this kind of work permit. The use of an LMIA also helps determine whether a Canadian citizen or permanent resident is available to fill a job position.

Positions that receive LMIAs are often highly in-demand within Canada. Below is CIC News’s breakdown of which jobs received the most LMIAs in 2023, based on data from the Canadian government.
