Entrepreneurs - Open a branch in Canada?

Open a branch in Canada.

Obtain a work permit.

Become a permanent resident.

This is by far the safest way to immigrate to Canada as an entrepreneur because immigration looks at the success of the company back home - and a good business plan - to render its decision.

You can be a business owner or you can send a senior manager to set up the Canadian entity.

It can be a parent, subsidiary, branch, or affiliate company. We will incorporate the Canadian entity for you.

There is no minimum investment required but you must show that the company back home has enough money to finance the costs of setting up and running the business in Canada, at least for the first 1-2 years.

You can start slow, with renting a virtual office for example, but you will have to demonstrate that you have more than just a business plan (website, location, discussions/negotiations/contracts with suppliers, distributors, clients). Our network of experts will help you set up the Canadian branch, step by step.

Depending on your background (age, years of work experience, level of education, language skills), we will be able to apply for permanent residence either right after the work permit is issued, or after 1-2 years of running the business.

We help entrepreneurs set up their business and immigration strategy and execute on it.

We believe immigration is more than just a visa. We accompany our entrepreneurs during their entire immigration journey: from business set up to the first work permit, then permanent residency and finally, citizenship.

  • Find the business to buy or rent.
  • Find the location.
  • Incorporate the business.
  • Write a business plan tailored to immigration requirements.
  • We put you in touch with our network to start finding clients, distributors, suppliers.
  • Find schools for your children.
  • Your spouse and children under 22 years old can be included in your application.
