Business

Canada offers a business platform filled with diversity that spans all industries. One major reason this is possible is due to the business class immigrants that the country accepts each year. These are individuals that are seeking to invest in the Canadian economy, and who bring with them culture and creativity from their homelands that will broaden the opportunities Canada has to offer.

If you are an individual that wishes to participate in one of the business or investor programs in Canada, contact Canadian Immigration Group today.  We will work closely with you to ensure that all application forms, documents, and other responsibilities required of you for the business programs in Canada are submitted in a timely fashion.

Provincial Nominee Programs

If you are seeking an accelerated immigration process that gives you the ability to establish permanent residency in Canada, you can apply for one of the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

Business programs available through the Provincial Nominee Programs are open to individuals that wish to establish a new business, invest their money in a business or plan to enter into a joint venture with an existing local business.

Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP)

Having one of the most powerful economies in Canada, Alberta is constantly looking to fill the demand for skilled labour workers. To maintain its strength, new business opportunities are often sought as well.  The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) is extended to individuals from foreign countries who have the ability to own and manage a farm in Alberta.

These individuals must possess management skills as well as provide all necessary documents and proof of their intentions to work and build a stronger economy for Alberta.

Other provinces that offer PNPs include the following:

  • British Columbia
  • Manitoba
  • New Brunswick
  • Ontario
  • Prince Edward Island
  • Saskatchewan
  • Yukon
  • North West Territories
