Canada allows potential immigrants to immigrate to Canada as Business Immigrants.

The Business Immigrant class includes three categories:

  • Immigrant Investor Venture Capital Pilot Program;
  • Start-Up Visa; and
  • Self-Employed

All business applications require extensive documentation and can be greatly assisted by legal preparation.
