What is Canada ICT?
Canada Intra-Company Transfer work permit or Canada ICT Visa is the pathway for skilled workers to work in Canada under an affiliated company. To be eligible for this, the worker must have worked in the company for at least one year in the position of either managerial role, or they should have advanced knowledge of the specific services or products that the business offers.
One of the main benefits of this intra-transfer permit is that there is no need for employers to get approval from LMIA to hire foreign workers. The validity of an ICT work permit is seven years for senior managers and executives and five years of skilled workers.
Working under a Canadian employee with a valid intra-company work permit can increase the chance for the skilled worker to get a Canada PR, as work experience in Canada is considered the plus point in Canada’s point-based immigration system. Having more years of experience in a Canadian company results in the highest CRS score.
