Are you considering expanding your business to the Canadian market? If you are, one of the biggest challenges you’ll face is finding the right resources to manage your branch there. However, if you take the key players from your existing team to Canada, you should find it easier to initiate your operations here. But, to get your team working across the borders in Canada, you’ll need to acquire immigration permits from the Canadian government.

Currently, there are several immigration programs for the transfer of employees and staff to Canada. But, if you have a business in a foreign country, you might be able to immigrate to Canada by opening a subsidiary in Canada and transferring yourself to Canada using the ICT work permit. The purpose of this permit is to provide foreign businesses a relatively easy way to transfer key employees to their Canada branch office without the need to apply for the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). The ICT program is much faster, simpler, and cheaper than the LMIA route. Therefore, it serves as a great solution.

Once you and your team are transferred to Canada under the ICT permit and have completed one year of work there, you will obtain up to 200 CRS scores in Express Entry. This puts you in a strong position to become a permanent resident of Canada. As a permanent resident in Canada, you get to choose where you want to stay and work.
