Starting a company or business in Canada allows owners, executives, or specialized positions within the company to be granted a work permit. These work permits are of a temporary nature but could eventually lead to permanent residency if they are linked to a migration strategy.
- Work permits for entrepreneurs
Free Trade Agreements offer the possibility for traders or entrepreneurs to obtain a work permit to open operations for their companies or to start a business in Canada.
In the case of businesses opened under the trader category, these companies must generate a trade of goods or services between Canada and the treaty signatory country.
- Work permits for investors
Under Free Trade Agreements, there is the possibility of investing in any type of business and obtaining a work permit to manage these companies. This category does not require a specific minimum investment nor are there restrictions on the type of business.
