An employer-specific work permit lets you work in Canada according to the conditions on your work permit, such as

  • the name of the specific employer you can work for
  • how long you can work
  • the location where you can work (if applicable)

You can apply for work permit to work in Canada based on LMIA 
If the employer is not able to find suitable employee in Canada, the employer can apply for LMIA so that employer can hire temporary foreign worker from outside or inside Canada

LMIA stands for Labour Market Impact Assessment and denotes that employer needs temporary foreign worker and no Canadians or permanent residents are available to do the job.
is a document that an employer in Canada may need to get before hiring a foreign worker.

LMIA is a 2 step process in most of the cases. First step is to post the advertisement by the employer for the job vacancy and second step is to submit the LMIA application to ESDC for further assessment.

After getting LMIA the worker can apply for work permit inside Canada or outside Canada
