Intra-Company Transferee (ICT) Work Permit
The intra-company category permits international companies to temporarily transfer qualified employees to Canada for the purpose of improving management effectiveness, expanding Canadian exports, and enhancing competitiveness in overseas markets. Employees may immigrate to Canada after gaining Canadian work experience.
Do you own a business overseas looking to expand your business or immigrate to Canada? Are you being transferred to Canada for work?
Intra-company Transfer (ICT) work permit, also known as C12 work permit, allows foreign business owners, senior managers and workers with specialised knowledge to establish/get transferred to a branch, affiliate or subsidiary in Canada, and receives a work permit.
As a part of the International Mobility Program, ICT applicants do not need to apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment. This will save applicants months in government processing time. Eligible applicants, or their spouse may apply for programs under the Express Entry system, or Provincial Nomination to immigrate to Canada.
We recommend ICT applicants to start their application process early, as almost all applicants need a business and many also need to incorporate their new company in Canada, which can take 3-6 months.
You may be eligible if you:
Are currently working for an international company and wanting to work in a parent, subsidiary, branch, or affiliate of that company;
Are transferring to a company that has a qualifying relationship with the company you are currently working for
Are being transferred to an executive, senior managerial, or specialized knowledge position
Have been employed (through payroll or contract directly with the company) at a company that plans to transfer you outside Canada in a similar full-time position for at least one year in the three years before you start this application
