Canadian Intra-Company Transfer

Worldwide organizations that have parent, branch, auxiliary, or member organizations in Canada might be qualified to send workers to Canada through an Intra-Company Transfer (ICT). As the process to get LMIAs can be expensive and tedious, therefore, not expecting to get an LMIA is one of the big-league upsides of an Intra-Company Transfer (ICT).

Organization Requirements

An organization is simply qualified to access ICT work permits in the event that they are working in Canada. Canadian and international areas need to give goods and services. In short, having an actual presence or office in Canada won’t do the trick.
