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

The BC PNP Regional Pilot program is a new immigration pathway for foreign nationals who are looking to establish and run a new business in smaller communities across British Columbia. Here, the business must be established in a community fewer than 75,000 people and located more than 30 kilometers away from a metropolitan area.

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.
