Business Immigration

Are you a skilled worker or a business owner? Then this is the perfect option for you! As a worker, you may be able to migrate to Canada through the Federal Skilled Worker program. As a business owner, you can apply for the Federal Start-Up Visa Program or the Federal Self-Employed Persons Program.

This immigration program is designed to help promote and develop Canada’s economy by attracting entrepreneurs, the self-employed and business persons who are not yet Canadian citizens. Currently, there are three Business Immigration Programs streams available, these are:

  • Self-employed program: this program is for people who are capable of creating their own employment, by contributing athletically, culturally, or artistically to Canada's employment market. People with sufficient funds and relevant work experience can apply for the self- employed program.
  • Start-up Visa: candidates may apply if they have a qualifying innovative business that will help grow the Canadian economy as well as create jobs in Canada. Successful applicants will get permanent residence for both themselves and their families.
  • Business visitor visa: This visa is for business individuals who intend to stay temporarily in Canada in order to engage in international business markets by growing, investing, or creating business connections. This category is for potential candidates who, among other requirements, do not intend to impact directly the Canadian job market.
  • PNP Entrepreneur Visa Stream: Entrepreneur programs like the New Brunswick Entrepreneur stream give immigrants the opportunity to take advantage of Canada's growing economic power and possibly gain permanent residence in Canada along with their families. Requirements for this program varies depending on the province, standard requirements include:
    • Having at least three years of experience in running a business acquired during the five years preceding the date you submitted your application.
