Start up or purchase a business for a provincial nomination

Applicants interested in immigrating to Canada through any Provincial Nominee Business program – under business, entrepreneur or self-employed streams, must meet basic requirements. Each province sets out their basic eligibility criteria based on its own regional needs.

Under Provincial Nominee Business Programs, foreign nationals require the capital, skills, education and business management experience that is needed to make a contribution to the province they intent to immigrate to, which in turn, can nominate them. Once nominated, by a province, applicants are issued a Certificate, allowing them to submit their application for Canadian residency.

The advantages of the Provincial Nominee Business Programs are many. First, these provincial business immigration programs allow for business immigrants to start up or purchase a business while also accelerating the immigration process of applicants and their families.

Provincial Nominee Programs for business and entrepreneurs generally require similar obligations such as a business exploratory visit trip, an interview with a Provincial Immigration Officer, business plans, cash deposits and the submission of performance agreement.

Applicants must meet the following requirements:

• Make a personal investment to establish or purchase a business. These investments range from $125 000 CDN (in New Brunswick) up to $1 000 000 CDN (in Ontario)

• Have a personal net worth of at least $300 000 CND.

• Be active in the day-to-day management activities of the business.

• Have previous management or business experience relevant to the proposed business.
