Canadian business immigration is aimed at applicants who wish to obtain a Canada immigration visa and who possess a minimum amount of funds and have business or management experience.
Applicants selected under the business immigration program and their immediate family members receive Canadian permanent resident status. After two years of residence in Canada, the business immigrant and family members become eligible to apply for Canadian citizenship.
There are three categories of Canada business immigration: entrepreneur; investor, and self-employed.
Entrepreneur Immigration: Applicants must prove a minimum net worth of CAD $350,000 and must have managed and owned a legitimate business for at least two of the last five years. Entrepreneur immigrants must own and manage a Canadian business within two years of becoming a permanent resident of Canada.
Investor Immigration: Applicants must prove a minimum net worth of CAD $1,600,000 and must have managed and owned a legitimate business for at least two of the last five years. Investor immigrants are required to make a secured investment of CAD $800,000 with Canadian Immigration authorities.
Self-Employed Immigration: Applicants in this category must be able to prove a minimum net worth of CAD $100,000 and must have a minimum of two years of self-employed business experience. At the present time, both Saskatchewan and Manitoba have good opportunities for self-employed immigration through their Provincial Nominee Programs.
