The province of British Columbia has a new and efficient program for entrepreneur immigrants. Foreigners are invited to start a new business or purchase and expand an existing business while creating a new job for a Canadian or Permanent Residents. In return, the entrepreneur and his family can receive their Canadian PR. The business ideas and the applicants will be assessed under a point system. Applications with the highest points will be selected and can receive a two years’ work visa in order to start their business operations. After 18 months of operation, the applicant sends a Final Report to prove that he has complied with all the requirements of the program and did his best effort to have a successful business with a positive contribution to the local economy, including the new job creation. If the province is satisfied, it will issue a nomination for the applicant and his family that allows them to apply for the Permanent Residency.
