Canada offers the most established and widely-used investment-based immigration programs conferring permanent resident status.
The Canadian confederation system of government and the country’s social norms offer a “European alternative” to the more unabashed capitalism of the USA.
Canada offers European-style social benefits with moderate levels of taxation and unparalleled quality of life. Under the Canadian model, business immigrants can enjoy the benefits of a national health care program, affordable first-class education and a national pension system that provides measurable annual income upon retirement.
Several business immigration pathways are offered at the federal and provincial levels to those wishing to buy an existing business, start a new business, or make a passive investment.
At the provincial level, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and British Columbia business programs are by far the largest and most popular. The provinces have autonomy over its immigration systems, allowing them the freedom to formulate and operate their own immigration programs.
