Doing business in a global economy means your Company places a premium on being able to transfer human and material resources across international borders with minimal restrictions. Canada has a growing economy, an educated workforce, excellent telecommunications capabilities, and a high standard of living. These and may other factors make Canada a desirable location for cross-border business ventures and global economic trade. In fact, most US retailers and industries are all doing business in Canada because of the similarities between US and Canadian markets.

The decision to expand your business into Canada is a dynamic and involved one that should be based on advice from trusted and credible professionals. The Canadian government is anxious to foster a business climate that is receptive to foreign investment. At the same time, consideration by the government of Canada will always favour foreign investment when the calculus can establish a net benefit to Canadians and our economy. All foreign investment and business immigration strategies should account for the ability to enhance Canada’s economy and create opportunities for Canadians.
Canada has a strong economic culture. If you have experience in the ownership and management of a business, you may qualify for a Canadian immigration program. Business immigrants are people who have the means and capabilities of making an investment in Canada and who are expected to support the development of a strong and prosperous Canadian economy. Canada traditionally has welcomed three classes of business immigrants that include investors, entrepreneurs and self-employed persons. However, based upon the specific needs of the Canadian economy and the availability of Government resources to administer such programs, certain classes of Business Immigrants are created from time to time to meet the objectives of the Canadian economy. For more information on the availability of any categories and classes of business immigration, the qualifications required, and the most recent selection criteria being implemented, please contact us to arrange a comprehensive immigration consultation.
