Default Confused with LMO Work Permit

Hi

I may qualify for a inter-company transfer.... my new job in Canada will be a sales rep for a medical company. Does this class as specialist knowledge ???

If not the job will be home based in Alberta and the company headquarters are in Toronto. Does the employer get the LMO from Ontario.


Any advice would be great.

Not really - everyone can be a sales rep, there is no special skill or knowledge (beyond learning basic info about company's products) required. So, if you are not an executive or high level manager with the company then forget about intra-company transfer.

Home based job will not qualify for LMO - it must be a full time employment. Sales reps are not full time employees, they are in 99.99% of cases self-employed agents.

Thanks for your info, but i disagree, it is a full time job with a wage. NOT self employed. More like a business manager.

Remember that the job must also be one that they can't readily employ a Canadian to do. Sounds like your employers need to look at the Job Description and beef it up a bit.The biggest shortage within any skill group in Alberta is Salespersons but work permits are not usualy available for these jobs due to the perceived skills level being too low (I looked into it for myself about 18 months ago) The official line is that a 'local' could be readily trained up despite no locals being faintly interested in doing the jobs. Yep its a bitch
