Managing your Own/ Buying an Existing Business
This stream will help you transfer your existing business to Canada or start a business in Canada, which will give you the opportunity to obtain a work permit and subsequently apply for permanent residency for the whole family.
Attention! This program does not have a criterion for the size of the investment. The candidate receives a work permit based on a business plan only. After spending a year in Canada, you can start the immigration process.
The candidate requirements are that the individual has a unique business idea in the field of science, technology, production or service, and that they receive the investment from Canadian investors or venture funds. This has been the standard practice since the launch of the program in 2013, and dozens of our clients have obtained a residency permit since launching their businesses with this program.

Provincial Programs for Investors
The candidate requirements are that the individual has the intention to live in the province and take on an active role in the management of a new or existing business, and a detailed business development plan including the role of the investor in managing the business. Often, the provinces require a guarantee deposit of $75,000 CAD to $350,000 CAD, which can be refunded after the opening of the business. There will also be medical and criminal background checks.
