Canada business Immigration
The Canada Business Immigration Category of visas was designed to attract experienced business people to Canada. Successful candidates are those who can invest in Canada, start businesses in Canada and generate revenues and employment for Canadians.
In 2003, over 8,100 business migrants were allowed entry into Canada. In 2005-2006, the government target is to welcome between 9,500 to 10,500 Canada business immigrants.
In order to encourage the development of a strong, prosperous economic environment, the Canadian government seeks business people with sufficient business experience and the necessary assets.
There are three categories:
Investor Immigrant Visas: aimed at successful senior executives with managerial experience or successful owners or part-owners who have the intention and ability to invest in Canada for a term of 5 years;
Entrepreneur Immigrant Visa: aimed at successful owners or part-owners with significant business experience who have the intention and ability to own and manage a business in Canada, which generates revenues and employment;
Self-Employed Immigrant Visa: aimed at persons with relevant experience in world-class athletics or cultural activities or with farm management experience, who have the intention and ability to become self-employed in Canada;
