Chinese Agricultural Enterprise Enters Canada

Chinese Agricultural Enterprise Enters Canada

Our client, an agricultural equipment manufacturing and assembling company, contacted us about expanding its business to Canada. The company required assistance regarding business immigration options for their Executive Manager overseeing their Canadian expansion. The client had a budget between CAD $250,000 and CAD $350,000.

The facts of the case were:

  • The parent company has been operating in China for several decades, focusing on agricultural equipment manufacturing and assembling;
  • The Executive Manager has several years of experience in the industry and has a proven track record of business development;
  • The Canadian company will explore similar business opportunities in the agricultural industry; and
  • The client wanted to enter the Canadian market by the end of 2022 to capitalize on certain areas of business interest.

Our business immigration lawyers carefully analyzed our client’s business objectives and proposed to pursue the Intra-Company Transfer program. We spent several weeks reviewing and preparing the client’s documents, conducting market research, and assisting the client with developing a thorough business plan. Since some of our team members are fluent in Chinese, it was a seamless process.

The Timeline of the Case – Rejection to Approval

Our business immigration lawyers incorporated the Canadian affiliate and submitted the immigration application on 29 November 2021. On 3 February 2022, we received a letter of refusal from the IRCC.

Shortly after, on 7 February 2022, we submitted an ATIP request and received it on 10 March 2022.

On 10 May 2022, our business immigration lawyers filed a reconsideration challenging the refusal, and the application was approved on 1 June 2022.

We are thrilled to welcome a new and exciting company to Canada with great potential to contribute to the agricultural sector and economy significantly!

Key Takeaways and Challenges

In our experience, even the most “clear-cut” applications can be denied by the IRCC. Visa officers sometimes overlook important information, resulting in a rejection of the application. IRCC is experiencing a phenomenal increase in the workload, and, understandably, some employees will make mistakes. Our job as lawyers is to advocate for the best interests of our clients and achieve the desired result.

Although we sympathize with the challenging situation that IRCC is in now, we believe that our clients deserve the fair and reasonable treatment of their business immigration applications. We spend considerable time with our clients, learning about their business, exploring Canadian expansion options, and assessing their experience and business capabilities. We know what decision to expect from the IRCC. However, when that is not the case, we make sure to advocate for our clients and get the conclusion that they deserve.
