Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement
The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) encourages entry to Canada for specific business visitors, investors, intra-company transferees, service providers, and independent professionals.
CETA is a free trade agreement between Canada, the European Union (EU), and its member states.
CETA promotes entry to Canada for certain eligible persons by removing the requirement for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) to be brought before that person can legally execute work in Canada. The LMIA process guarantees that companies in Canada may only hire if it is determined that no Canadian citizens or permanent residents can perform the role. The LMIA process also contains advertising requirements and processing times.
Therefore, being excused from the requirement to acquire an LMIA can make the procedure of coming to Canada for work purposes much more accessible.
Business visitors to categories of business visitors may appreciate facilitated entry to Canada under CETA: short-term business visitors and business visitors for investment purposes.
- Intra-company transferees
The intra-company transferee provisions of CETA are similar to the already existing Intra-Company Transfer program, including graduate trainees. In addition, senior personnel and specialists also to Canada without an LMIA.
The investor provisions listed under the essential personnel category of CETA are similar to the provisions found in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
- Contractual service suppliers and independent professionals
CETA facilitates the entry to Canada of certain service suppliers and independent professionals.
