Businesswoman from the UAE Starts a Canola Business in Canada

Businesswoman from the UAE Starts a Canola Business in Canada

A successful pharmaceutical professional from the United Arab Emirates contacted us to advise her on starting a canola processing company in Canada. The client had a budget between CAD $250,000 and CAD $350,000. Below are the facts of this case:

  • The client had a successful career in pharmaceutical medicine and corporate management. Throughout her career she acquired significant medical knowledge and corporate senior management experience;
  • The client has specialist knowledge in the biochemical-production processes, pharmaceutical sales, and production;
  • The client wanted to use her experience and knowledge to start a business in Canada, in which she would own 100% of the shares;
  • The client would undertake the position of the Chief Executive Officer of her Canadian company;
  • One of the key aspects of the immigration plan was to bring her husband and their children to Canada with her; and
  • The client and her family had Pakistani citizenship.

After careful consideration of the client’s key priorities and business objectives, our business immigration lawyers proposed to pursue the C11 Entrepreneur Work Permit immigration route.

The Timeline of the Case

We began the business immigration process by incorporating our client’s company on 28 October 2021.

The business immigration application was submitted on 3 February 2022. It was approved relatively quickly on 14 April 2022. The client received a work permit, her husband received an open work permit, and their children received temporary resident visas and study permits.

The client and her family are looking to arrive in Canada in late spring or early summer! 

Key Takeaways from the Case

It is often that we highlight the procedural intricacies of business immigration due to the overall complexity of the process. However, in this case, we would like to highlight the entrepreneur herself, who is showing remarkable qualities as a foreign businesswoman in Canada.

Firstly, our client started building her business network very early on, before she even came to Canada. She reached out to industry organizations and started developing fruitful relationships with them. Building professional and business networks is crucial for foreign entrepreneurs, as they usually leave all of their connections behind in their home countries. 

Secondly, the client invested in education. She enrolled in a course that is focused on new product development. This is very important, as foreign entrepreneurs tend to solely rely on their business knowledge and experience. By enrolling in a course, she will learn skills and techniques that would help her develop her new product in Canada
