Business Class

The business class Immigration Program seeks to attract business immigrants to Canada in order to promote the development of a strong and prosperous canadian economy.

To support the development of a strong and prosperous Canadian economy, Canada welcomes three classes of business immigrants: investors, entrepreneurs and self-employed persons.

Investors must make a $800,000 investment that is used by the provinces for economic development and job creation.

Entrepreneurs must own and manage a business in Canada that creates employment for Canadian citizens or permanent residents.

Self-employed persons must have the ability to employ themselves and make significant contributions to cultural activities, athletics or farming.

Note: The following information does not apply to business immigrants who intend to live in the province of Quebec. Under the Canada-Quebec Accord, Quebec selects its own business immigrants.


An application may be submitted in only one category.
The criteria to meet to qualify are different from one category to another.
