Program delivery update: Intra-company transferees

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada staff. It is posted on the Department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

April 30, 2019

The instructions on processing intra‑company transferees have been updated. Officers are now instructed to process applications under the intra-company transferee Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) exemption under which the applicant has applied. Officers should not amend the application to an intra‑company transferee category related to a free trade agreement (FTA) if the category was not chosen by the client, even if they may be eligible.

The recaptured time provisions offered to intra‑company transferees have also been amended to allow applicants to recapture time periods of 30 consecutive days or longer. The previous guidance permitting time periods of less than one month have been removed.
