Film & Television – LMIA required for non-union, low wage

All non-union cast and crew (producers are exempt) must obtain a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) before entering Canada to work on a feature or television project.

Submit LMIA forms directly to Service Canada for processing.  Foreign workers who receive a positive LMIA can proceed to a Canadian port of entry to apply for a work permit from Immigration, Refugees, & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
