Foreign Businesspeople will often invest into businesses in Canada to be able to immigrate to Canada. They can often obtain a Work Permit within 6 months, move to Canada with their families, the begin their new lives in Canada!
It’s important to keep the end goal in mind, however. The Work Permits are usually only for 1 year at a time, though in many cases can be renewed. But since Canada eliminated the Federal Entrepreneur and Investor Immigrant Programs about 2014, the route available for many business immigrants is as skilled workers.
Being in Canada offers a number of opportunities to increase your chances to qualify as a Skilled Worker; however, Immigration laws are constantly changing. At New Creations Canada, we highly recommend people to work with a good Immigration Lawyer or a Licenced Immigration Consultant to guide you through the system!
