The Entrepreneur Program is meant for people with business experience who can effectively manage a Canadian business which in turn has a positive effect on the Canadian economy and opens doors for employment to Canadian inhabitants.

The prospective applicant should be one who contributes to Canada’s economy and helps create employment opportunities. This stream is also the path to obtaining Permanent Residence status in the country.

However please note that as of July 1, 2011, there is a pause on this specific program.
