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).
PLEASE DO NOT PHONE SERVICE CANADA UNLESS IT'S AN URGENT MATTER.
