Business Immigration Services that Work
Canada is seeking business owners and investors to contribute culturally and economically to the benefit of Canada. Whether you are looking to open a branch of an existing business, purchase a business or start a new business there are programs that are designed to allow successful and experienced business owners to settle in Canada.
The Intra-Company Transfe Program allows individuals to work in Canada without having to first obtain an LMIA.
To be eligible for this program you must:
be currently employed by a multi-national company and seeking entry to work in a parent, a subsidiary, a branch, or an affiliate of that enterprise;
be transferring to an enterprise that has a qualifying relationship with the enterprise in which they are currently employed, and will be undertaking employment at a legitimate and continuing establishment of that company (where 18–24 months can be used as a reasonable minimum guideline);
be being transferred to a position in an executive, senior managerial, or specialized knowledge capacity;
have been employed continuously (via payroll or by contract directly with the company), by the company that plans to transfer them outside Canada in a similar full-time position (not accumulated part-time) for at least one year in the three-year period immediately preceding the date of initial application.
If you meet these requirements then the intra-company transfer may be for you!
C10, C11 Significant Benefit
The following two streams are known only as "Significant Benefit" streams that involve LMIA exemption codes C10 and C11. Under C10, foreign nationals who offer significant economic, social, or cultural benefit to Canada may be able to employ the International Mobility Program that allows employers to hire temporary workers without a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) where there are broader economic, cultural or other competitive advantages for Canada or there are reciprocal benefits enjoyed by Canadians and permanent residents.
Under C11, foreign nationals applying to work for themselves or to operate their own business on a temporary basis may be able to work in Canada if they are able to demonstrate that their admission to Canada to operate their business would generate significant economic, social or cultural benefits or opportunities for Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
