Entrepreneur Program​

Experienced business people who wish to own and manage their Canadian business actively are ideal applicants for the Entrepreneur category of Canadian immigration. We carefully review your documents related to business, experience in managing the business and personal net worth. Evaluation on business and personal objectives are also done before filing your immigration application for permanent resident visa. We always assure that you are filing in the most suitable of the three Canadian business categories, namely, entrepreneur, self-employed or investor. Being a Canadian Entrepreneur, you are not expected to seek employment and may not be permitted to work in Canada. This also implies that ideally you should initiate business in specific areas that contribute to the business environment of the region where Entrepreneur visa holders settle in Canada. You must know that the visa granted under this category is a conditional one and you must comply with some post-landing requirements for three years in order to get the PR (Permanent Resident) status. To be eligible in entrepreneur program, one must have a minimum net worth of CDN $ 300,000 along with at least two years of managing qualifying business experience in the period beginning five years before the date of application. Additionally, they must have the intention and the ability to actively manage a qualifying Canadian business for at least one year and create full time job for one Canadian citizen or permanent resident other than entrepreneur family members. Canada’s stable economy and well-built financial system make it attractive place for seasoned business people throughout the world to immigrate and establish their businesses. The business immigration program is formulated to encourage and facilitate the admission of successful business people who are seeking new opportunities.
