Economic Immigration

Canada is experiencing an aging workforce and declining birthrate. Canada has put into place programs to increase economic immigration in order to improve Canada's economy, create new jobs and increase global competitiveness. The Canadian government announced in October 2015 that Canada wants entrepreneurs and new immigration goals and programs provide immigration opportunities for skilled and educated foreigners who want to move to Canada. Canada's business and economic immigration programs require planning and applicants must be able to prove eligibility guideline qualifications for each program.
