【If you are transferring to Canada, these are the tips to read! Learn the basics of the Intra-company Transferee Work Permit】(Updated July 22, 2021)

Are you transferring to Canada? In order to work in Canada, you need to obtain a Canadian Work Permit.  Here are easy to understand tips for Intra-Company Transferee Work Permit.

The advantages of a Work Permit for relocation:

  • Can be prepared and obtained in a relatively short period of time
  • Once travel restrictions are lifted, you can apply at the airport in one step (while travel restrictions are in effect, you need to apply at the embassy if you are coming from a country other than U.S.A.)
  • No competition with Canadian candidates
  • Less burden for the company
  • Cost saving compared to other application program such as Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)

How long can I get to work in Canada?

The length of the Work Permit for intra-company transfer depends on the position.

Can the president himself be transferred?

It is possible for the president himself to relocate to Canada. When you work for an existing Canadian company, your Work Permit will be issued for an initial period of three years, whereas if you want to start a new business, your initial Work Permit will only be for one year.  You can extend it after that.

The perspective of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada when applying for a new business
  • Having employees and keep running the company overseas
  • the company is large enough (and profitable) to start a Canadian company
  • the company has the ability to hire at least one Canadian or permanent resident within one year of starting the business.

Message from Yumi Ueda

This Work Permit is recommended for those who are relocating to Canada because it is relatively quick to obtain and exempts from the complicated Labor Market Impact Assessment.  Many of our transferred clients have come to Canada and are currently  working in various industries even  during the travel restriction period due to Covid-19 pandemic.

Our transfer clients range from small companies run by a couple to publicly listed  companies.

Once you work in Canada for more than one year with an Intra-company Transferee Work Permit, you may be able to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
