Business Immigrant Visa

Maybe you want to run a vineyard?

The business immigrant visa class is for people who are experienced in business and are willing to invest in businesses or start a business in Canada.

There are three categories of Business Immigration.


The Investor program requires that you be an experienced business person and that you deposit $800,000 with the Canadian government. This is an interest free loan on your part, which you will get back at the end of five years. If you are interested in this route then please contact me as there are some interesting ways of making this work for you.


The Entrepreneur class is for people who have run businesses before. Amongst other requirements, you must start and run a business in Canada that provides full-time work for at least one Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident within three years.

Self Employed

The Self-employed category is more limited than it sounds at first. You must make a significant contribution to cultural activities or athletics or purchase and manage a farm in Canada.

Full details about this visa category can be found on the CIC's Business Immigrant visa page
