Entrepreneurship Provisional Programs
BC PNP Base Plan
Immigrants who aim to start a business in the province of British Columbia are encouraged to apply for the British Columbia BC PNP Visa program. Applicants must provide a business concept and business plan during the first stage of the application process, which accounts for 40% of this stage.
In the second stage, applicants are requested to submit a detailed business plan with evidence for the claims they made earlier about the overall potential of their business in the province.
BC PNP Regional Plan
Participating communities outline the type of priority sectors that are able to apply, and each community has unique application requirements to comply with. Generally, a business concept or business plan is required in order to be invited for an exploratory visit.
Approved applicants will first obtain a temporary work permit to start and operate their business in British Columbia for a least 12 months in accordance with the terms of their established Performance Agreement.
Applicants must demonstrate farm management skills and sufficient financial resources to invest in a primary production farming business in Alberta.
The MNP-FRSI Visa, on the other hand, aims to attract immigrants with farming experience to contribute to the province’s rural industry.
Both programs are a unique pathway to permanent residency. Key requirements are a Self-Assessment Form and a well-thought-out Business Concept.
Successful applicants will be granted temporary work provisions to establish the proposed business in the province.
Nova scotia NSNP
