Expanding Construction Material Trading Business from Vietnam to Canada

From Ho Chi Minh City to Canada with Confidence

Our Client is a very prominent businesswoman, with more than 12 years of entrepreneurship experience in the trade and construction industry, contacted us to advise her on whether she can set up an office in Canada and trade her construction materials in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), Ontario. The Client’s company made a strategic decision to create a start-up subsidiary in Canada and open an office in the GTA region considering the growing demand for high-quality construction materials. The company had set aside around CAD $300,000 to invest into the Canadian business over the course of 3 years.  

Our Client’s situation was as follows:

  • The Client is a high-level executive with a decade-long experience in the General Manager position of the construction materials and installation sector.
  • The parent company employs around 41 people and generates revenue of nearly $3.5M a year.
  • The parent company proposed to provide the Canadian subsidiary with CAD $100,000  initial investment capital to begin operations in Year 1. The Canadian subsidiary is scheduled to receive additional funding of $200,000 in Years 2 & 3.
  • The Canadian subsidiary tasked the Client with overseeing its launch and facilitating early business development in the new market.
  • The Client wanted to come to Canada with her spouse and two children for the duration of her employment contract.

Given the foreign company’s goal to launch new operations in Canada, we proposed to initiate an Intra-Company Transferee process.

The Timeline of the Case

On July 12, 2021, the Client’s application was submitted to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Within 2 weeks the IRCC requested the Client to undergo a medical examination,  however, our Client was unable to follow through with the Medical Examination until October 2021. Once the examination was completed, the IRCC approved our Client’s Work Permit in the same month of October 2021, which took just over a week after completing the Medical Examination.

As for our Client’s family, her spouse received an open work permit and their two children received study permits allowing them to benefit from the Canadian public education for free. Please see below.

Our Client is planning on arriving in Canada shortly with her entire family. We are happy to help a growing business strengthen its roots in and expand to Canada. More than that, we are glad that we were able to fully accommodate all of the Client’s needs in one application.

Success Factors in this Case

In general, any business immigration application must be well-prepared and supported by relevant, well-organized documentary evidence that highlights strong facts and aspects of the case, including finances, the experience of the applicant and viability of the business vision. 

The success factors in this case were:

  • the strong and financially sound parent company which has been in business for over 10 years.
  • availability of liquid funds to inject into Canadian subsidiary company.  
  • a well-researched, realistic and viable business plan that clearly outlined the market penetration strategy and 5-year operational plan.
  • clear hiring and employee training plan that demonstrates beneficial impact on the Canadian labour market.
  • significant industry experience of the applicant and strong managerial skills that are necessary for her new role at the Canadian subsidiary.
  • the applicant’s strong ties to home country, ownership of real estate assets and significant net worth.

I cannot say enough good things about Sobirovs Law Firm’s exceptional team. My work permit application was quite complex and underwent numerous tests, including a rejection from the first attempt. Feruza developed a tailored strategy that contributed to the best chance of success in the resubmission, and her entire team presented my case with unparalleled expertise and genuine care. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to Maggie, a phenomenal consultant who supported me in every step of the application, took the time to understand my unique situation and answered all my questions patiently. Her in-depth knowledge of the work permit program, proficiency in preparing my application and professional communication were reassuring and truly remarkable. Thanks to your team’s extraordinary work, I can now pursue my business goals in Canada with peace of mind.

I had a great experience working with the Sobirov Law Firm. The entire team was professional, prompt, and meticulous in their approach. We started working with them on LMIA under GTS of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. The time it took from creation of an Incorporation to submission and approval of our application was around 8 weeks. Work Permit approval took another 2 weeks. They also helped us get shared office space since it was a new experience for us. They guided us in finding a payroll service provider and a realtor to help with the relocation of the foreign employee. My sincere thanks to Feruza Djamalova and Rakhmad Sobirov (Attorneys), and Yulia Kan (Team Lead).
