INVESTOR THROUGH FREE TRADE AGREEMENT
The Application Process
Once we have identified that you qualify for this program, there will be 2 general phases to the application process:
01. THE WORK PERMIT APPLICATION
This is when you request a work permit for yourself and permits for you family to move to Canada and start operating your business. You must actively operate your business, passive investment is not considered for this program.
02. THE PERMANENT RESIDENCY APPLICATION THROUGH EXPRESS ENTRY
After actively managing your business in Canada for 1 year, you will gain extra points that will be added to the other points you accumulate through age education, work experience, and language skills. If your points are high enough to be invited by Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), we will prepare a permanent residency application for yourself and your family.
