Investors, Entrepreneurs & Self-Employed Persons

For those individuals seeking to come to Canada as a part of the business immigration category, there a few different routes you may take depending on your unique situation and needs.  The primary focus of Canada’s business immigration programs is to attract those individuals with proven business experience who can help support the development of a strong and sustainable Canadian economy.  You must demonstrate that you have had business success in the past and that you can replicate that success in Canada while adapting to any differences Canada may have compared to your country of nationality.  Our Toronto immigration consultants have a strong focus and specialization in the business immigration category.  We work hard to ensure that if you are applying under this immigration category that your paperwork is expedited so that you can come to Canada as a business immigrant as soon as possible.  Our Toronto immigration consultants will ensure that your application is a top priority when being prepared to submit to the government because, generally speaking, there are usually no wait times for these types of applications.  There are of course exceptions to this in times when there is a back log of applications that the Citizenship and Immigration Canada is trying to clear.  Depending on your unique situation, there are a few different types of business classes you may apply under.
