Intra-Company Transfers to Canada

Those working abroad as an executive, senior manager or specialized knowledge worker seeking to come to Canada to work for a subsidiary, affiliate or branch of their current employer abroad may be eligible to enter Canada as an Intra-Company Transferee. The process of obtaining a work permit in Canada as an Intra-Company Transferee is simplified, as there is no need to obtain a Labour Market Opinion from HRSDC.

For citizens of Canada, the U.S. or Mexico, intra-company transfers are facilitated under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Our team can assist those seeking to enter Canada as a NAFTA Intra-Company Transferee.



NAFTA Intra-Company Transfer Work Permits – July 2015

I want to express the gratitude you deserve for the excellent job your team performed assisting our Company achieve work permits for our project at the Vancouver Airport Authority.  When I met you two years ago at the U.S. Department of Commerce cross-border trade conference in Watertown, New York, (at which you did an excellent job as a conference presenter), I knew you were a results-driven individual. Results are exactly what you provided Hi-Lite when we asked for 8 work permits to be issued in a very short period of time, enabling us to deliver our Vancouver services.  I had previously dealt with various other Canadian immigration lawyers, none who had conducted the work to your high caliber of knowledge and professionalism.  Your team and expertise have proven to be a great asset for Hi-Lite and we look forward to working together again.

Thank You!

NAFTA Intra-Company Transfer to Canada – July 2013

My application at the border was a success! Thank you so much for putting together such thorough documentation, I was very impressed when I picked it up and the border agent said it was by far the most comprehensive application he had seen. Thank you for all your help throughout the process and for preparing me to attend at the border.
