Intra-Company Transfers (ICT) Canada

This intra-company category allows international companies for temporary transfer of qualified employees to Canada. The purpose of this is for improving management effectiveness, expanding Canada’s exports, and enhancing competitiveness in a global market.


The process is guided by the Immigration & Refugee Protection Regulations. It is supplemented by the provisions present in the international trade agreements for citizens of signatory countries.


Qualified intra-company employees getting the transfer require work permits. They are exempted from the LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment) under paragraph R205(a) (exemption code C12) as they provide significant economic benefit to Canada through the transfer of their expertise to Canada’s businesses.

Paragraph R204(a) provides for LMIA exemption code T24 for qualified intra-company transferees who are citizens of a country that has signed a free trade agreement (FTA) with Canada, i.e. NAFTA (and similar FTAs). This further supplements the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act general provisions.


As per the information provided you can get the shares transferred on your name and be eligible for this program.
