Hi, and welcome to BE. I'm not sure that it's a job that is likely to get you a LMIA tbh, do you have any other route to a visa - perhaps a spouse's job?

Best of luck.

Labour Market Impact Assessment.

To get a LMIA, your potential employer has to pay $1000 and prove that they have advertised the job across Canada, and been unable to find a Canadian willing, or able, to do the job.

Once the employer has been granted a positive LMIA, you can then apply for a work permit.

This is assuming you don't have another route to a visa of course?

HTH.

Ah, that could be much better, although will involve quite a lot of cost/hassle/waiting to be able to work there from what I understand.

Plus if you did manage to find a job offer/LMIA/work permit for Canada then your spouse wouldn't be able to work and you'd only be able to apply for PR in certain provinces. Whereas a nursing job/work permit would mean you could both work and apply for PR anywhere, as it's a 'skilled' job. So it would probably be far better for your spouse to lead the way and try and get a visa for those reasons, as well as the fact that his/her job will be more in demand.

Have a look at the nursing forum and search the main Canada forum to see what your husband/wife would need to do to be able to work in Canada, and good luck.
