Business Immigration and Cross Border Business are rapidly evolving as the needs of individuals and companies change due to new laws, health concerns, the economy and the ease of international travel. Canada's government and immigration laws make it a welcoming, attractive destination for American companies and individuals to expand their business or launch a new company.
Many United States business owners are looking north to expand and grow their business. Canada is a good option for Americans to open a business because we share a common language, similar work and home cultures, education goals and are in the same time zones with shared borders. Many American workers welcome the opportunity to move to Canada's progressive society with free and accessible education and health care.
I will do whatever it takes. There will be more to come.
