Other than two Federal Investment programs, investors around the world can apply under various provincial immigration categories to settle in Canada. These entrepreneur Streams were designed to support individuals from countries outside Canada who are looking to implement a new business idea or buy an existing business in the provinces. The Entrepreneur Stream involves a series of steps before an applicant is granted permanent residency.
Successful applicants are initially awarded temporary residency, with permanent residency dependent on the performance of the business against agreed targets. When you make sure you satisfy all criteria and requirements you can Complete and submit an online Expression of Interest (EOI) for the related province. Once an applicant is invited to apply, they will need to submit a business case along with the necessary forms and supporting documents within timeline.
The Entrepreneur Streams offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to be nominated for permanent resident status once their business has been successfully established in the province. It is clear that in order to participate in the Entrepreneur Stream, the Principal Applicant and his/her Business Partner (if applicable) must meet the minimum requirements. Every province manages and controls its immigrant selection criteria in accordance with their needs and priorities.
