Business Applications

You may be able to immigrate to Canada if you are an investor, entrepreneur, or self-employed.

Self-employed persons in the arts and entertainment industry can use this category. They usually need to show that their business has a cultural, farming or athletic value to Canada.

Investors or entrepreneurs often have to prove that, for two of the 5 previous years, they:

  • had a "Qualifying business";
  • managed a certain number of employees;
  • made sales of at least $250,000 or $500,000;

  • the business had an equity of at least $125,000;
  • can make a certain level of monetary investment;
  • have at least 35 points under the Immigration Points Assessment system, which awards points depending on your age, business experience, education, language, etc.).
