Ontario is beginning to recruit 100 international entrepreneurs from outside Canada with $200,000 each, who want to start a business or buy an existing business in Ontario but outside the GTA.
The minimum net worth of the business outside GTA is supposed to be $400,000. This is a two-year project with the hope of creating job opportunities in the information technology, life sciences and tourism sectors.
After the business starts operation in Ontario for 18 to 20 months, the applicants will be nominated for permanent residence.
Entrepreneur Stream at a glance
This stream is for entrepreneurs from outside Canada interested in starting a new business or buying an existing business in Ontario.
It gives an entrepreneur (and up to one foreign national business partner) the opportunity to be nominated for permanent residence once their business has been established in Ontario.
The Entrepreneur Stream application is a two-stage process:
You may register an expression of interest by email.
If invited, submit an online application.
You and your business partner (if applicable) attend a mandatory interview.
If your stage 1 application is successful, you must sign a performance agreement.
A temporary work permit support letter will be issued so that you can apply to IRCC for a temporary work permit.
Establish your business
If your business meets all requirements, you will be asked for documentation to make sure you are eligible for nomination for permanent residence.
