CANADA IMMIGRATION GUIDE
There are many immigration options available in Canada. The following are some of the most common methods for migrating to Canada: Express Entry, provincial nomination programs (PNP) and Entrepreneur immigration (Startup visa). The purpose of Express Entry is to encourage more eligible immigrants to apply for permanent residence through the federal skilled worker program by providing an additional pathway through which qualified individuals can access the program. With the introduction of the PNP, the provinces were responsible for administering the National Occupational Classification.
To qualify for the entrepreneur immigration program, you must have a business or industry experience that will contribute positively to the Canadian economy. You may also be required to demonstrate the ability to manage and operate a successful business.
There is no cap on the number of new entrepreneurs that can be accepted into the program, though certain categories of new entrepreneurs may face a higher level of requirements and screening than others. Entrepreneur immigration is often a preferred option for first-time entrepreneurs, because they do not require any investment and may prove profitable in the long run, although most provinces have special programs designed for start-ups.
The NNP was introduced to encourage the entry of candidates who met specific economic needs. Applicants must have a job offer that demonstrates a need in order to be eligible for the program. In addition, you must be in an occupation that has been identified as one of the best suited to meet Canada’s future labour market needs. Business and industry professionals can apply for the Business immigration program, which enables them to work in an area of their expertise.
Business immigration provides the most flexibility in the type of occupation or industry to work in and can be considered if you plan to stay in Canada for at least three years. The requirements to become eligible for this program include being at least 18 years of age, holding a valid passport and a business degree. The program is designed to attract the top talents to Canada’s economy by allowing skilled and educated individuals from abroad to make contributions to the country’s growth and development. If your objective is to achieve permanent residency status as a Canadian citizen, you must have completed all necessary steps to prove that you meet all the requirements for permanent residency.
Immigrants can obtain a provincial nomination if they meet the provincial criteria and are eligible to immigrate to that province. A provincial nomination is more likely to lead to a permanent residence than to Canada through Express Entry. In this process, you must demonstrate that you are financially capable of supporting yourself and/your spouse and dependent children.
