Intra-Company Transferee Requirements

Posted in Intra-Company Transferee

An Intra-Company Transferee is essentially and work transfer program for lack of a better analogy. It involves an eligible worker who wishes to transfer between two qualifying organizations of the same company. The parent company being abroad and the branch company in Canada. As the applicant, there is a long list of criteria that you must meet in order to qualify. The same goes for your company. There must exist a "qualifying" relationship between your home company and the branch you wish to transfer to. Demonstrating this relationship is easier said than done.

Akrami & Associates can help you with this. Contact us for more details!

If you intend on applying as an intra-company transferee, as the applicant, you must:

  • have worked:
  • on an ongoing basis,
  • for at least one year in the last three years,
  • for the same or a related employer in the United States or Mexico,
  • be transferred to Canada to work short term for the same or a related employer,
  • work as a manager, as an executive or in a job that uses specialized knowledge, and
  • have a work permit.

The above will help you understand whether or not you meet the basic criteria to be considered an eligible worker. You will also need to determine the nature of your work:

Executive capacity means that the employee primarily:

  • Directs the management of the organization or a major component or function of the organization;
  • Establishes the goals and policies of the organization, component, or function;
  • Exercises wide latitude in discretionary decision-making; and
  • Receives only general supervision or direction from higher level authorities

 Managerial capacity means that the employee primarily:

  • Manages the organization, a department, subdivision, function, or component of the organization;
  • Supervises and control the work of:
  • Other manager or supervisors;
  • Professional employees, or
  • Manages an essential function within the organization, or a department or subdivision of the organization.
  • Has the authority to hire and fire, or recommend these and other personnel actions, such as promotion and leave authorization; if not other employee is directly supervised, functions at a senior level with the organization hierarchy or with respect to the function managed; and
  • Exercises discretion over the day-to-day operations of the activity or function for which the employee has the authority.

Specialized Knowledge means that the employee primarily:

  • Has unique or unusual knowledge of a company's product or service and its application in international markets, or an advanced level of knowledge or
  • expertise in the organization's processes and procedures (product, process and service can include research, equipment, techniques, management, or other interests).

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!
