The intra-company category permits international companies to temporarily transfer qualified employees to Canada.

Qualified intra-company transferees require work permits and are exempted from the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) as they provide significant economic benefit to Canada through the transfer of their expertise to Canadian businesses.

The Canadian and foreign enterprises must be legal entities that have a parent, subsidiary, branch or affiliate business relationship. Both the Canadian and foreign companies must be or will be doing business.

qualifying relationship remains if the Canadian and foreign entities continue to meet the definition of parent, subsidiary, affiliated or branch companies. If the entities no longer meet the requirements for these relationships, then any foreign intra-company transferee currently working for the Canadian entity would not qualify to continue working for the new entity.

If the qualifying relationship remains, foreign intra-company transferees may continue to work for the new entity on the strength of their existing work permit.
