If yes, then this is commonly referred to as an intra-company transfer. It omits the participation of the HRSDC and the need for an LMO/LMIA.
To qualify for intra-company transfers to Canada, it is mandatory for your company to show that it is actively conducting business operations within Canada and other foreign countries. Thus, if your company plans to expand its operations in the Canadian market, the applicant may be able to make a request for an intra-company transferee work permit.
One can apply for a work permit in advance from any Canadian Visa Office or a Foreign Canadian Port Of Entry. However, if the employee of your company is visiting Canada as a ‘visitor’, then a work permit may only be applied for from within Canada in certain situations.

A lot of efforts, pressure and thought goes down in order to choose the right kind of people who can efficiently handle and manage these growing opportunities.
