Some employers have to prove their business legitimacy when they are looking to sponsor a foreign worker. This is a requirement to proceed with the LMIA application process. There may also be other reasons why an attestation letter is required.
Attestation letters are prepared by a person of authority such as a lawyer and the letter must include that the business is in good financial standing and can meet all financial obligations to any temporary foreign worker they may hire for the entire duration of the employment. In order to attest to that fact, the Immigration Lawyer will review several corporate and financial documents to ensure compliance.
A business has to be in good standing to hire temporary foreign workers. If the business was not corporate and financially suitable to keep the commitment to the foreign worker, then there will be a risk that the temporary worker becomes unemployed affecting the Canadian labour market.
Depending on the business, the lawyer will determine the list of documents to be provided, each attestation letter for an LMIA process is different since some sectors have different means to comply with their obligations. There will also be different kinds of documents depending on the size and age of the business.
