As a multinational corporation, have you ever wondered if it’s possible to transfer multiple employees to your Canadian company simultaneously? The answer is a resounding yes! In fact, it’s not only possible but also entirely feasible to bring in large volumes of foreign workers to Canada on work permits. In this blog post, we will share a remarkable success story of how we supported a Canadian employer in achieving this through the Intra-Company Transferee (ICT) program. Let’s delve into the details of this remarkable accomplishment.
Unlocking Possibilities: Transferring Multiple Employees
Traditionally, businesses would start by applying for one or two work permits and gradually increase their numbers over time. However, for multinational companies with operations both inside Canada and abroad, there’s an exciting opportunity to transfer employees in high volumes to their Canadian operations. This is made possible through various avenues, with the ICT program emerging as the most frequently utilised option.
Harnessing the Intra-Company Transferee Option (ICT)
Under the ICT program, multinational corporations and businesses with Canadian and international operations can transfer eligible employees from their related overseas branches to their Canadian company. The key to success lies in meeting certain criteria. Firstly, each transferred employee must satisfy the eligibility requirements. Secondly, the company must demonstrate sufficient financial capacity to adequately compensate its employees. By fulfilling these conditions, large-scale employee transfers become not only viable but also highly practical.
Specialised Knowledge and Managerial Expertise
Employees transferred under the ICT program typically fall into two categories: specialised knowledge workers and senior managerial personnel. Specialised knowledge workers possess deep expertise in specific technical industries, making them invaluable to their respective companies. Often, these employees come from the tech industry, where their roles demand a high level of technical knowledge and skill. Additionally, they possess proprietary knowledge, such as familiarity with unique company software or products that are exclusive to their organisation. Transferring these specialised employees to Canadian operations enables them to contribute their expertise effectively.
Driving Business Success in Canada
Multinational companies with Canadian branches often provide services to other Canadian businesses, such as banks. These companies may utilise proprietary software to support their operations, necessitating the presence of specialised employees within the Canadian context. Moreover, senior managerial staff who possess the skills to manage teams and projects play a crucial role in ensuring operational efficiency and the successful execution of business strategies.
