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.
Qualified intra-company transferees require work permits and are exempted from the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) as these workers provide a significant economic benefit to Canada through the transfer of their expertise to Canadian businesses. This applies to foreign nationals from any country, including under the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) and citizens of a country which has signed a free trade agreement (FTA) with Canada, namely NAFTA (and similar FTAs).
