Hello. My name is Michael Niren, I’m an immigration lawyer and founder of
visaplace.com. This is a video for those who are interested in getting a
work visa to Canada and who have a business overseas in their home country.
Benefits to Expanding Your Business Into Canada
One great way of getting a work visa for Canada is to consider expanding
your business into Canada from what you have overseas. So, depending upon
the kind of business you have, you may be eligible for what we call an
Intra-Company Transfer. So, the idea is that if you are an owner of a
business or you are a high-level manager or you have specialized skills,
you could be transferred into a start-up business in Canada that you wish
to expand you overseas business. So this way, on that basis you can
potentially get a work permit.
The processing time is not too long, generally. It could be just a few
months. We have to show, when we do these cases, that you have a viable,
real business over in your home country and that you have plans to expand
it in the United States. On that basis, you could apply for a work visa. If
you are married, your spouse could also get one, and your children, if you
have children, could potentially go to school in Canada on the basis of
your work visa. It’s a really, really good way of getting a work permit,
and you don’t need a job offer, of course, because it’s you who’s going to
be expanding your own business or your company’s business, if you are an
employee of a business overseas.
Criteria for Expanding Your Business Into Canada
So it’s an option that is becoming more and more popular. There are
restrictions. There are criteria that have to be met and followed. The way
we handle these cases is that we look at our client’s business in depth and
their circumstances in order to make sure that if we handle their case, we
can succeed. So the first step is to really take a detailed look at your
business and your situation, and then we can take it from there.
Are You Interested in Expanding Your Business Into Canada?
So this is just a message for anyone who owns a business or works in a
business and there is an option of expanding it into Canada. And this way,
of course, you don’t need a job offer, so we find this as a very, very good
avenue to get to Canada and to work in Canada. Of course, there are options
for permanent residence as well, on the basis of those work permits that
you get proof for. So that’s also something to consider. So hopefully, this
gave you some hope and some ideas about coming to Canada. Thank you, and
have a great day.
