NAFTA Work Permit

North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)

NAFTA allows citizens of Canada, the United States, and Mexico to gain quick entry into each other’s countries for temporary business or investment reasons, under specific circumstances. If you are a citizen of one of these countries, we can provide you with the advice and assistance that you need through this process.

You can fill out our free evaluation form and we will assess your eligibility for this class. You can also contact us for a free no-obligation consultation.

The qualifying persons under NAFTA do not need a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). This means that Canadian employers do not need to have a job offer approved by Employment and Social Development Canada to hire an American or a Mexican business person.

Under NAFTA, business people must meet the general rules for temporary entry to Canada.

There are four groups of business people under NAFTA:

  • business visitors
  • professionals
  • intra-company transferees
  • traders and investors

Please note that just like any other class; entry to Canada requires the person to be Admissible to the country. You can read more about Admissibility here

Contact us today and ask for your eligibility for Canadian visa or immigration plans. You may fill out the free immigration evaluation form and after we assess your eligibility our staff will contact you.
