Bringing them in for their experience and knowledge? When you say 'might be worth trying to work out if you can even get a job offer' what do you mean? How would you find that out?
The LMIA process is VERY specific and VERY strict.

The company has to put together the job posting and advertise the job nationally for 4 weeks.

For each Canadian (citizen or PR) that applies for the job, the company has to demonstrate WHY that person is not suited for the position. It might be that they don't have the necessary qualification, the necessary skill, the necessary language, whatever. They have to do that for each and every person who applies. If 100 people apply then the company has to provide 100 reasons for rejection.

Then they have to demonstrate that *you* have all the various skills that they require, and you have to be able to prove it.

So, for you to get 600 points in the form of a job offer, you have to have a formal job offer from the company accompanied by a positive LMIA decision from CIC.

You said your wife works in graphic design. Is there a shortage of graphic designers in Canada? Does your wife have specific skills or qualifications that Canadians may not have? I don't know the answers to these, I'm just trying to explain how CIC will look at it. CIC has to be convinced that your wife is the better suited and better qualified than any Canadian for the position. Is it likely that a company could get a positive LMIA for your wife?

When I said it would be worth working out if you can get a job offer, I mean you have to do some research into graphic design positions in Canada and what the industry looks like here. Canada is also really, really big. Perhaps it might not be realistic to get a job offer for companies based in Toronto, but perhaps a company based in a smaller town somewhere might be able to prove that they can't find a Canadian who is willing to move to wherever they are to do the job. (No idea if that's true or not, just illustrating an example.)

Hope that helps!
