As a qualified Entrepreneur, you and your immediate family can obtain Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visas under the Federal Program (applicants intending to reside anywhere in Canada, except Quebec).

The Entrepreneur Program requires you to establish or acquire a percentage of equity (at least 33.33%) in a qualifying Canadian business that you must actively manage. Your business must create at least one new job for a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

Entrepreneurs are persons who have successful experience starting and running their own business. The Canadian government encourages people with these business skills to immigrate to Canada. This is a way to obtain Canadian permanent residence both for the entrepreneur applicant and his or her family, including any spouse and children under the age of 22.
