The Investor Economic Class Program

The investor programs are created to help wealthy individuals to get Canadian permanent residency through passive investments.

Provincial Business Programs

By contrast, the provincial business programs require more active participation from those applying in this stream, through the applicant’s establishment and operation of a business.

Generally speaking, Canada’s immigration policy for permanent residency applications under the economic class favors those who have studied and/or worked in Canada, or those who have job offers pending from Canadian employers.

Temporary Economic Class Work Permit Programs

There are Canadian programs that allow you to enter Canada on a temporary work permit. This lets you work while your permanent residence application is being processed. Once you are accepted as a permanent resident of Canada, you are no longer attached to that specific employer. You are then free to work anywhere and at any company in Canada.
