Entrepreneur from China is Approved to Come to Canada to Start His Own Business

If you are an entrepreneur from China and would like to move to Canada to start your business, you should consider the multiple business immigration streams we have in Canada. One of them is the C-11 Work Permit, which allows entrepreneurs to come to Canada to start their businesses.

A C-11 work permit can lead to permanent residency after 1 year, provided that your business is active and well-established and you meet all other eligibility criteria for permanent residence (such as strong language skills, educational credentials, no history of criminal behaviour, etc.).

If you are hesitant to take action because you do not know where to start, the story of Mr. Z.G. will inspire you to take the first step.

Background of the Case

Mr. Z.G. is an accomplished professional with 16 years of experience in automation-related services. He started his career as an equipment maintenance engineer and worked for world-renowned companies based in China. Later, he started his company, providing maintenance and repair services to companies using automation machines. Mr. Z.G. intended to expand his business activities to North America and had set aside $120,000 of liquid funds to start a business in Canada.

He retained our law firm to help him set up his Canadian business and obtain proper authorization from Canadian immigration authorities to operate the business in Canada.

Investment & Relocation Process

Below, you will find a detailed process of the case.

Step 1: Company Formation: We assisted Mr. Z.G. in registering his company in Ontario, Canada, so that he could start his business activities in Canada.

Step 2: Business Concept Development: Next, we brainstormed Mr. Z.G.’s business vision in Canada and conducted thorough market research to understand if there was a demand for his intended services in the city of his choice (1-hour drive from Toronto). We then developed a solid, realistic business plan backed by extensive research and market analysis.

Step 3: Filing an Immigration Application: Our team assisted Mr. Z.G. in preparing a solid immigration application for a Canadian work permit under the Entrepreneur Program (C-11 class). We also requested a work permit for his spouse and a study permit for his accompanying child. In the application, we thoroughly explained his intended business in Canada. We addressed all other essential aspects of his immigration application, including his modest investment capital, hiring plan and the start-up nature of his business.

Step 4: Approval: About 2 months after sending the IRCC our application package, we received a letter from the IRCC that Mr. Z.G.’s application was approved! He received his 2-year work permit as an entrepreneur, while his family received permission to join him in Canada.

Facts of the Case

  • Cost of Immigration application: $30,000+
  • Investment amount pledged: $120,000
  • Employment opportunities for Canadians: 3 new positions
  • Time to prepare the application: 3 months (including business concept development & research & document collection)
  • Time to get a decision: 2 months.
  • Outcome: a work permit valid for 2 years under Entrepreneur Class.
