1. Understanding LMIA Refusals

LMIA refusals can happen for various reasons, including incomplete applications, insufficient documentation, or concerns about the impact on the Canadian labour market. Understanding the specific grounds for refusal is the first step in addressing the issue.

2. Reviewing the LMIA Decision

Carefully review the LMIA refusal letter to identify the reasons for the denial. This information is crucial for determining your next steps.

3. Option 1: Reapplying for LMIA

In some cases, it may be possible to address the issues that led to the refusal and submit a new LMIA application. This option is viable if the issues are correctable, and you have additional evidence to support your case.

4. Option 2: Requesting an LMIA Reconsideration

If you believe that the refusal was based on incorrect information or if you have new evidence to present, you can request a reconsideration of the LMIA decision. This process involves submitting a formal request and supporting documentation to ESDC.

5. Option 3: Appealing the LMIA Refusal

If you disagree with the LMIA decision and believe that it was made in error, you can appeal the refusal to the Federal Court. This is a legal process that requires careful preparation and presentation of your case.
