Intra Company TransfersAn Indian business can use this program to transfer their key talent from their offices abroad to any of their affiliate, subsidiary, branch or any parent company located in Canada.

In this program, the employees are transferred to Canada with necessary work permits. There is no requirement for the employer to apply for the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

The Indian nationals coming to Canada under this program will still need to satisfy the entry requirements to Canada like applying for and obtaining the temporary resident visa.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Indian nationals with at least one year of employment with the foreign company
  • The Indian national being transferred should be placed in any office within Canada
  • The Indian national transferee should possess either one of the below three positions:
    • Executive-should be managing a major business area of the company or the entire company
    • Specialised knowledge – possesses specialized knowledge regarding the company’s service, processes or products
    • Managerial – leads a team of managers or professionals and manages a substantial part of the company

It is essential for the business office in Canada to demonstrate a broad and qualifying relationship between the Indian national transferee and the foreign business. Doing this is vital to apply for and successfully obtain the work permit.

Any Indian business can start a Canadian affiliate, subsidiary or branch under this program. They can be assured of the faster establishment of their business and its operations in Canada once they have their key employees here. Notes that Startups can also explore this category provided certain additional requirements are met.
