Entrepreneur and Investor Applications for Permanent Residence in Canada

The Canadian government announced in October 2015 that Canada wants entrepreneurs. Business, investor and entrepreneur immigrants can help support Canada's economic growth and create new jobs.

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.

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.

Under the NAFTA agreement, citizens of the United States or Mexico who invest in new or existing businesses in Canada may be eligible to apply for Investor work permits to manage their Canadian businesses. The NAFTA Investor Program allows American or Mexican managerial entrepreneurs who have made a significant investment in a Canadian business to enter Canada to develop and direct their business. The investor will still need a work permit, but they do not require an LMIA.
