3. From Intra-Corporate Transferee To Permanent Residency

The Canadian subsidiary of a multinational corporation is an excellent opportunity for company owners who want to establish themselves in Canada and take advantage of all it offers. The possibilities for multinational corporations to develop and manage an office in Canada are limitless! 

Federal Programs (Transfer from Intra-Corporate Transferee to Permanent Residency)

  • You could start your company’s Canadian subsidiary, which will be eligible for permanent residence once fully operational.
  • When the Canadian subsidiary is launched and made fully operational, it may be eligible for permanent residence. 
  • The owner/transferee of this business can then extend a job offer that will allow them to continue managing their successful company in Canada.

On average, immigrants with a business background can expect to spend several years in Canada before becoming permanent residents and another three applying for citizenship.
