The Canada's Business Immigration Category of visas was designed to attract experienced business people to Canada. Successful candidates are those who can invest in Canada, start businesses in Canada and generate revenues and employment for Canadians.
In 2013, over 9000 business migrants were allowed entry into Canada. In 2015-2016, the government target is to welcome a similar number of Canada business immigrants. In order to encourage the development of a strong, prosperous economic environment, the Canadian government seeks business people with sufficient business experience and the necessary assets.
Depending on your net worth, ability and willingness to invest in Canada, managerial skills and business acumen, investing in Canada could be a route to permanent residence. If you're looking to make an investment in the Canadian economy, the government of Canada, as well as certain Canadian provinces provide some enticing options.
