The Importance of Minimum Advertising Requirements

The minimum advertising requirements are in place to ensure that Canadian employers prioritize hiring Canadian workers before seeking foreign workers. This helps maintain the integrity of the Canadian labor market and ensures that foreign workers are hired only when there are no qualified Canadians available for the job.

Meeting the Minimum Advertising Requirements

To satisfy the minimum advertising requirements for LMIA, employers must complete the following steps:

1. Job Postings

Employers are required to post the job vacancy on the Government of Canada’s official job bank or on the equivalent provincial or territorial job bank. The job posting must remain active for a minimum of four weeks.

2. Advertise in Multiple Places

In addition to the job bank posting, employers must also advertise the job vacancy through at least two other recruitment methods that are consistent with the occupation and industry. These methods can include, but are not limited to:

  • Advertising in local, regional, or national newspapers.
  • Advertising on job search websites.
  • Using professional associations.
  • Participating in job fairs or industry-specific events.

3. Maintain Records

Employers must maintain detailed records of all recruitment activities and advertising efforts, including copies of advertisements, receipts, and any responses from potential Canadian workers.

4. Proof of Advertising Efforts

As part of the LMIA application, employers must provide evidence of the job postings, advertisements, and all efforts made to recruit Canadian workers.
