Provincial Investor Program canada

Under Business Immigration programs or Provincial Investor Program Canada, the federal government allows many entrepreneurs to apply for permanent residency  Mid-range net worth individuals with suitable entrepreneurial experience may be eligible to apply under one of many Provincial Investor programs in Canada.

Each province manages its own entrepreneur programs and generally follow a multi-step process to permanent residence. Applicants submit an expression of interest and wait for an invitation to submit an application. Selected candidates submit a complete application which is assessed by the province’s immigration authorities. If approved, candidates are generally required to sign a Performance Agreement and apply for a work permit and enter Canada as a worker at first. If the Performance Agreement requirements are met at the end of a designated period, candidates receive the provincial nomination. Based on that selection or nomination, they may apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent residence.

The majority of these provincial business immigration programs require active participation in the management of a business based on a specified investment and job creation.  Some of the programs require a goodwill deposit which is refundable once the business has been established. Under provincial investor program Canada programs, applicants first apply to be nominated by a province, and on the basis of that nomination may obtain Canadian PR following federal health and criminality checks. 

The Entrepreneur Immigration stream of the BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) is a path to immigrate to Canada and settle in B.C. for experienced entrepreneurs who can support innovation and economic growth in the province.
