Canada Business Visas for Investors

Many people want to move to Canada for new opportunities. Canada is a warm and friendly country that welcomes skilled and educated newcomers who will help strengthen our economy. Canada business visas for investors and entrepreneurs allow individuals and families to move to new opportunities personally and professionally.

Canada offers qualified investor newcomers

  • excellent free health care
  • high-quality schools and educational programs
  • opportunities to build a business and become part of Canadian society

Canada business visas are an opportunity for foreigners to immigrate to Canada as investors or entrepreneurs and become permanent residents. There are different programs to move to Canada for foreigners who want to invest in a business, purchase a Canadian business or launch a start-up business. With the proper information and qualifications, a business investor can get a business visa and a work permit in as little as 1 month, and become a Permanent Resident in as short as 6 months.

Canada Business Visas for Investors and Entrepreneurs

Investor Applications

Business immigrants who want to buy a business in Canada may qualify for a Temporary Foreign Worker permit under owner-operator policies will benefit from discussing their application and qualifications with an immigration legal expert who can advise them.

Business, investor and entrepreneur immigrants can help support Canada's economic growth and create new jobs. Quebec's Investor Program is for immigrants with business experience who want to move to Quebec and are willing to make a 5-year investment of C$1,200,000 in Quebec.

Self-Employed Persons Program

To immigrate to Canada as a self-employed person, you must demonstrate that you are able to be self-employed in Canada and meet all selection, medical and security criteria to move to Canada.

There are 2 pathways to becoming a Canada Permanent Resident in the Self-Employed Visa program: Cultural Activities and Athletics. Applicants must be willing and able to make a significant contribution to the cultural or athletic life of Canada.

Start-Up Visa Program

The Start-Up Visa Program focuses on entrepreneurs who want to immigrate to Canada. Specifically, those who can build businesses and create jobs for Canadians and Permanent Residents. The start-up visa allows applicants to obtain their Permanent Residency. Canada's start-up visa is the first of its kind in the world, linking immigrant entrepreneurs with experienced private sector organizations that have expertise in working with start-ups.
