Intra-Company Transfer

Intra-Company-Transfer

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This program allows foreign workers employed with a company overseas to work in Canada if the business has a branch or location in Canada or is in the process of setting this up. This program is in place to allow for the movement or workers in order to facilitate business operations without the requirement of getting a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS

To qualify for an Intra Company transfer, the foreign worker must:

  • Have minimum one-year full-time work experience at the foreign company;
  • Provide existing proof showing the linkage between the Canadian business and foreign business as well as between themselves;
  • Fall into one of three categories: Executives with senior authority and decision making, Senior managers whose principal duties are to manage the business and employees, and workers with specialized knowledge, pertaining to the company’s products, services or possess expertise in a special area.

PROGRAM PRIVILEGES

This work permit facilitates the transfer of workers with specialized experience/skills and allows the worker to be exempt from needing an LMIA to enter Canada. Once the foreign worker has accumulated the necessary work experience, they can also use the work experience gained under this program to qualify and apply for permanent residency through the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) or Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW), thus being able to stay in Canada permanently.
