Canada-EU free trade brings immigration opportunities

Canada’s free trade agreement with the European Union (EU) is good news for newcomers to the country, says Toronto immigration lawyer Robin Seligman.

The Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) came into force provisionally on Sept. 21, creating new opportunities for three groups of European citizens seeking temporary or longer stays in Canada.  

  • Key personnel: including intra-corporate (company) transferees, investors, and business visitors for investment purposes;
  • Contractual service suppliers and independent professionals; and
  • Short-term business visitors.
