How to Immigrate to Canada as a Business Investor
Getting Canadian Permanent Residency through Business Immigration
Many experienced professionals and business owners might think that immigrating to another country means starting their career from scratch, finding a new job and / or starting a graduate or post-graduate program that would allow them to work and build a new life abroad.
Nevertheless, in many countries, investors are welcomed to start a new business or buy an existing one and become a permanent resident provided that they meet the eligibility requirements.
Usually applicants are requested to invest a minimum amount, prove certain net worth and have managerial or ownership experience for a few years to be eligible. However, each country and region define the requirements based on their economic needs and priorities.
Thus, whether you have experience as a business manager or owner, you don’t need to restart your career, work in a lower position, or enroll in a new educational program only to be able to come to Canada and become a permanent resident in the future.
Canada has several programs for entrepreneurs interested in either opening a temporary business here or settling and immigrating to the country permanently through business immigration. Canada offers a variety of business opportunities in different sectors for foreign nationals intending to invest in the country. This is one of the country’s strategies to grow and strengthen its economy.
