Entrepreneur Program Process

As a qualified Entrepreneur, you and your spouse and children under the age of 22 can obtain Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visas under the Federal Program (applicants intending to reside anywhere in Canada, except Quebec). The Entrepreneur Program requires you to establish or acquire a percentage of equity in a qualifying Canadian business that you must actively manage. Your business must create at least one new job for a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

Currently, entrepreneur programs are administered by individual provinces and follow a two-step process to permanent residence. The programs vary in the requirements in each province.

Under provincial nominee programs, applicants first apply to be nominated by a province, and after nomination they will receive work permit to enter Canada and start the business then after accomplishing the proposed business during certain amount of time(1-2 years) they can obtain permanent residence after Federal health and criminality checks.
