How Entrepreneurs can immigrate to Canada
If you have an entrepreneurial mindset and a dream to immigrate – Canada offers some business immigration options that you may choose from.
First of all, you need to face the truth – if you have money to invest in such a long-term process as immigration, or not?
1 – Startup Visa
Even though you will have expenses for visa itself, setting up your project, and settle your family in Canada, the biggest advantage of this program is that you don’t need any proof of net-worth. Since we got into advantages, we have to mention that here you also don’t need to proof any business experience, you don’t need to wait in any queue to be reviewed, and, finally, this is the fastest business program in terms of getting the Canadian PR status. Even though it is called a Startup Visa, it is technically a straight path to immigration. Language requirements for this program - CLB 5.
2 – Business Visa
Unlike the previous type of program, this Business Visa is just a temporary visa that allows you to run your business in Canada for a limited period of time. It has its requirements that include proving the source of funds and the previous experience of business management. See the extended list of requirements for the Canadian Business Visa. Again, this is a temporary status in Canada. If you want to immigrate having Business Visa on your hands, contact us to see your immigration options. As well as previous option, Business visa has the CLB 5 as a language requirement.
3 – PNP Programs
Provincial Nominee Program is another straight path for immigration. Almost every province in Canada has its own nominee program that includes requirements specifically designed for this province. We work with 3 different PNP programs for the province of British Columbia (BC Entrepreneur Immigration Regional Pilot Program, BC Business PNP, BC PNP Tech Pilot), Manitoba PNP, Alberta PNP, NWT PNP, Atlantic Immigration Pilot, Ontario PNP, NB PNP Entrepreneur. All of them have different requirements for investment funds and net worth, which need to be proved and presented to the government of Canada. And don’t forget – your language (English or French) skills will be tested at the highest level.
So, if you are a business owner, or just dreaming of running your own business as well as moving to another country for good – consider Canada as your immigration option. Canada is welcoming bright minded entrepreneurs with innovative ideas and business mindset. Order our business consultation to figure out which program would work best for you!
