To sign in to the LMIA Online Portal, you must first create your own user account on Job Bank. Before you can submit an application for an LMIA through the Portal, you also have to register the business on Job Bank. Visit Job Bank’s page for employers to learn more.
Important: If you are a third-party representative and you want to apply for an LMIA on behalf of the business, both you and the employer (i.e., the owner or an employee of the business) must have a personal user account on Job Bank. You must also both be registered in the employer file for the business. Do not contact Job Bank to add someone or to be added to an employer file. The person who manages the employer file can easily add new users to the file on their own.
If you need help, you can view tutorial videos and find other helpful tips on the LMIA Online Portal resources page.
