Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada is the Canadian Government entity that handles skilled worker immigration. Top-scoring candidates in the Express Entry pool are issued with invitations to apply to one of the following programs:
-Federal Skilled Worker
-Canada Experience Class
-Provincial Express Entry Categories
Once an ITA has been approved, candidates must complete a full application to the relevant program.
Canada’s Federal Skilled Worker program uses points to select applicants. It sets criteria to show whether the applicant and dependents will successfully establish themselves in Canada. Ideal applicants have skills and experience that match in-demand occupations and have had a job approved by the right agencies. The selection rules favor applicants with job offers from Canadian employers.
Economic immigration opportunities are more abundant in Quebec and other Canadian provinces.
Under the Quebec skilled worker class and the provincial nominee class, applicants may become permanent residents on the basis of their proven ability to become economically established in Canada, in accordance with immigration programs and selection criteria administered by Quebec or the provinces.
The startup visa, for example, is a Canadian program that lets entrepreneurs immigrate to Canada. It was created to help bolster the country’s entrepreneurial sphere by giving international applicants the opportunity to establish their own businesses and gain Canadian experience, without first obtaining lawful permanent residence or citizenship. Quebec, meanwhile, operates the highly-popular Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP).
The Start-Up Visa Program was introduced by ministerial instruction in April 2013 as a five-year pilot project. It was made permanent on March 31, 2018. The Start-Up Visa program grants Canadian permanent residence to qualified immigrant entrepreneurs. The program aims to recruit innovative entrepreneurs to Canada and link them with Canadian private sector businesses, (angel investor groups, venture capital funds or business incubators) and facilitate the establishment of their start-up business in Canada.
The Self-Employed Class is built for applicants with relevant self-employment experience and the intention and ability to create employment, contribute significantly to Canada’s cultural, artistic, or athletic life, or create jobs through running a farm. The Quebec government works its immigration programs by providing skilled workers with business class selection rules.
Investing in the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program is a great option for entrepreneurs with a high net worth who are seeking a new challenge. The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP) is the only option for business immigrants with a high net worth wishing to secure permanent residence on the basis of a passive investment. The primary requirements to qualify under the Quebec Investor program are:
-Have a legally acquired personal net worth of $2 million;
-Possess two years of suitable management or business experience within the five years preceding the application;
-Commit to making an investment of $1.2 million into a passive government-guaranteed investment for a period of five years bearing no interest;
-Intend to settle in the province of Quebec.
