The main aim of Canada’s business immigration program is to promote economic development and employment opportunities. The Canadian government seeks to attract investors, entrepreneurs, and self-employed persons from foreign countries who have the business and entrepreneurial skills needed in Canada.

Canada welcomes successful business people who are seeking new opportunities, challenges, and who are familiar with foreign markets, special requirements, and customs as Canada also seeks to develop new commercial opportunities through these foreign markets.

The successful business individuals who have managerial experience and a sufficient net worth can apply for Canadian Immigration (permanent residence) visa through one of the Canadian business Immigration Programs under any of the following three sub-categories:

  • Entrepreneur Start-up Visa Program
  • Self-Employed Persons Program
  • Immigrant Investor Program
