Immigration using NAFTA

The National American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) enabled free international trade between three countries – The United States, Mexico and Canada. The trilateral agreement between the three countries eliminated unnecessary trade barriers and reinforced their economic standards.

Under NAFTA, the following categories of people are eligible for a work permit:

  • Business Visitors
  • Professionals
  • Intra-Company Transfers
  • Traders and Investors

Business Visitors

High-profile entrepreneurs or business owners engaging in international business from Canada do not require a work permit. The National American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) allows entrepreneurs freedom to operate their business.


NAFTA has listed 60 occupations that can acquire a work permit without the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). These professionals provide pre-arranged services to Canadians.

Intra-Company Transfers

A majority of the Multi-National Corporations (MNCs) have several branches around the world. Skilled employees from America or Mexico can be transferred to a branch in Canada. These intra-company transfers can be processed without the involvement of the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

Traders and Investors

Traders and Investors play a significant role in lifting the economic standards of Canada, North America and Mexico. They invest large sum of money and trade in goods & services that make a pronounced impact on the markets of the three countries.
