Canada, with one of the most business-friendly economies in the world, is a hugely attractive country in which to develop and build a new business idea.
If you’re looking to immigrate to Canada as an entrepreneur in the Canadian economy, the government of Canada, as well as certain Canadian provinces, present some enticing options.
Start-up Visa Program
The Start-Up Visa Program encourages immigrant entrepreneurs to grow their companies in Canada. Successful applicants link with private sector organizations in Canada, where they can receive funding, guidance and expertise in opening and operating their enterprise in Canada. With the Start-Up Visa, Canada is targeting entrepreneurs who have the potential to build innovative companies that can compete on a global scale and create jobs.
Quebec Entrepreneur Program
The Quebec Entrepreneur category of Canadian immigration was designed to allow qualified business owners and managers the opportunity to obtain Canadian permanent residence, provided that they can effectively create or acquire an agricultural, commercial or industrial business in the province of Quebec.
British Columbia Provincial Nominee Entrepreneur Program
With a strategic location, low taxes, competitive operating costs and a multicultural workforce that is well-educated, highly-skilled and productive, British Columbia is one of Canada’s most dynamic places to do business, presenting unique business opportunities for entrepreneurs.
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program’s (OINP) Entrepreneur Program
This helps individuals from countries outside of Canada to implement a new business idea or buy an existing business in Ontario. It also offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to be nominated for permanent resident status once their business has been successfully established in Ontario.
