How can I come to Canada as a business immigrant?


The Canadian Government selects business class immigrants based on their ability to become economically established and support the development of the Canadian economy.

Business immigrants are people who can invest in, or start businesses in Canada and are expected to support the development of a strong and prosperous Canadian economy.

There are two classes of business immigrants:

  • Those who enter with a start-up visa
  • Self-employed persons

Start-up visa Program

To be eligible, you must have:

  • A commitment of support from a designated Canadian venture capital fund, business incubator or angel investor group.
  • An ability to communicate in either French or English
  • An adequate amount of money in order to settle and provide for the cost of living prior to earning an income.

Self-Employed Persons

To be eligible, you must have one of these:

  • Experience that will make a significant contribution to cultural or athletic life in Canada; or
  • Experience in farm management and you must intend to and be able to buy and manage a farm in Canada.

You’re not alone as a new immigrant in Canada!

it’s important to know you’re not alone as a new immigrant in Canada! Canada is a country of immigrants. 21.9% of people who live and work in Canada were not born in the country, and 22.3% of the population identifies as a visible minority.

Those numbers are even higher in urban centres. Overall, Canada is a very open culture that welcomes new immigrants and celebrates multiculturalism.

Canada’s major cities are especially multicultural and attract a very high number of immigrants. Over 50% of the residents of Toronto and Vancouver, for instance, identify as visible minorities.

Toronto has been called ‘the most multicultural city in the world’ and over 200 unique cultural groups reside in the city.
