Business Class Immigration Overview

Canada’s growing economy is largely founded upon small and medium size businesses. By securing a Canada Business Visa based on Canadian Business Immigration streams, you too can be part of the vibrant Canadian Economy.

If you are self-employed or an entrepreneur, immigration to Canada is possible through a route known as Business Class Immigration. A business visa for Canada is an excellent immigration route for those who wish to set up their business within Canada.

Programs within the business class are designed to help create businesses which will invest in Canada and contribute to growth of the economy as well as create employment opportunities for Canadians across the country, both at Federal and Provincial levels.

Individuals with business/managerial experience and relatively high net worth may be eligible to apply for a Canada Immigration (permanent resident) Visa under one of the Canadian business immigration programs under one of the following three sub-categories:
