Owner Operator Work Permit
Owner/ Operator LMIA-Based Work Permit
Any Canadian employer who wishes to employ a temporary foreign worker must first go through the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) process. Through this process, an employer obtains an authorization from the Government to bring a foreign worker to Canada.
However, some LMIA applications are exempt from advertising requirements, and this is one such exemption.
This category has been specifically created for foreign businesspeople who wish to either establish or purchase a business in Canada and manage it.The role of the simplified procedure is to attract businesspeople to the country and make the transition process smooth, easy and quick.
