Intra-Company Transfer Program for Global Talent Mobility

In today's interconnected global business landscape, talent mobility is more important than ever. Companies are increasingly looking to leverage their international employees' skills and experiences to drive growth and innovation. One of the ways they can do this is through the Intra-Company Transfer (ICT) program. Here, we explore the many benefits that the ICT program brings to employers in Canada.

Benefits of Intra-Company Transfer Program to Canadian Employers

Access to the Global Talent Pool

The Intra-Company Transfer program allows multinational companies to tap into a broad talent pool spread across the globe. By transferring employees from overseas branches to their Canadian operations, businesses can benefit from diverse perspectives and skills, fostering innovation and enhancing competitiveness.

Skill Transfer and Knowledge Sharing

Intra-company transfers enable the sharing of specialized knowledge and best practices across international borders. Employees transferred under the Intra-Company Transfer program often possess unique skills or proprietary knowledge about the company’s products, services, or processes. By bringing these employees to Canada, companies can ensure that this valuable knowledge is disseminated to their Canadian operations.

Leadership Development

The Intra-Company Transfer program is a powerful tool for leadership development. Providing international experience helps nurture future leaders, broadens their perspective, and equips them with the skills needed to lead in an increasingly globalized business environment.

Strengthening Business Relationships

Transferring employees from one country to another can help strengthen business relationships and improve communication between different branches of a multinational company. This can lead to better alignment and collaboration, leading to improved business outcomes.

Bypassing Labour Market Impact Assessment

One of the significant advantages of the Intra-Company Transfer program is that it allows employers to bypass the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), a process that can be time-consuming and complex. This makes it faster and easier for companies to bring in foreign workers when needed.


The Intra-Company Transfer program is a valuable tool for businesses looking to harness the power of their global workforce. Facilitating the seamless movement of key personnel across borders, allows companies to remain competitive and innovative in today's fast-paced business world.
