Help Centre what do you need help with?

I am an entrepreneur. Do I need a Labour Market Impact Assessment to work in Canada?

No. You can apply for a work permit without a Labour Market Impact Assessment, but you must intend to operate a business in Canada that would create or maintain:

  • significant social, cultural or economic benefits, or
  • jobs for Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada.
