Top 7 Factors to Consider Before Deciding to Start Your Business In Canada

What Are Top Factors to Consider When Starting a Business in Canada?

Making decisions is part of our everyday life. There are tons of life events that call us to make a choice. Small decisions could be done in just a snap and may have little or no impact on life at all, but big decisions are a totally different story. It takes a great amount of time to think things through.

One of the best examples is building your own business. This is definitely a big and challenging decision that requires careful evaluation, full commitment, determination, time, and effort.

Let us begin by asking questions about you.

  • What have you been thinking lately?
  • Are you looking for great opportunities outside your comfort zone?
  • Are you thinking of starting or expanding your business?
  • Is Canada one of your top countries to explore?

Maybe these are the few things that are running through your head at this moment. Let us guide you by sharing the top factors to consider before deciding to start your business in Canada.

What Are Top Factors to Consider When Starting a Business in Canada?

The factors to consider include financials, languages, cultures, the industry or industries, government regulations, the business plan, and professional network:

a. Financials

 It is important to all newcomers, more so for business starters, to be financially prepared before settling in any foreign country. The cost of living in Canada is probably higher compared to most countries but may vary depending on the province.

Hence, if you are running a business, it is practical to review the cost of living and business operation costs for each province to make a comparison and decide which region best suits your business. Depending on your goals, you may want to consider a province that has a more affordable cost of living and wages to maximize income.

No matter where in Canada you will establish your business and live, you will enjoy a very good quality of life, rule of law and opportunities for business. Much depends on what kind of business you will be engaged in.

b. Languages

If you come from a non-English/French-speaking country, it is time to learn a new language. Canada’s main languages are English and French. Thus, knowing how to speak one of these languages would benefit you in your daily life and in growing your business. As an entrepreneur, dealing with people and building a professional network requires good communication skills which are fundamental elements in business to achieve a high success rate.

c. Cultures

Canada is home to diverse cultures. This is one of the things that makes Canada an attractive place to do business. Moving to this country does not force you to forget about your origin, but rather an opportunity to share your culture or values while learning to embrace and adapt to new cultures with open-mindedness. When starting or expanding a business in Canada, it is vital to learn the Canadian culture and the needs of your new market and thus enable you to formulate the most effective business strategy. 

d. Industry(-ies)

Researching industry trends before establishing a venture in your target country is very important. No matter how good your products or service is, if it does not align with the Canadian market, it would be impossible to prosper. Learn more about the most profitable industries in Canada here:

e. Government Regulations

Canada is a federation type of government and quite de-centralized. The regulations are under the federal or provincial authority. It is critical for aspiring entrepreneurs to review the business laws and regulations applicable to the province where you plan to operate. Consulting these intricate matters with Canadian lawyers who are experts in this field like Sobirovs Law Firm will give you great confidence as they help you navigate your business goals in legal ways. 

f.  Business Plan

To have a clear roadmap about building your business in Canada, a comprehensive business plan will sum up the above-mentioned factors. This will be achieved by conducting thorough market research with clear and realistic projections. The right business plan would be your foundation and guide to surpass any obstacles along the way. However, formulating a business plan itself may be a setback for you when it should not be. Fret no more! Sobirovs Law Firm has trusted partners that could help you create a well-structured business plan.

g. Professional Network

Starting a business overseas could be challenging and daunting due to the complexities of government regulations and loads of required documentation. This is when experienced professionals such as bankers, accountants and lawyers come in to help. They are knowledgeable and highly skilled professionals who you could rely on to help you make strategic methods to fulfill your business plans.

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to Maggie, a phenomenal consultant who supported me in every step of the application, took the time to understand my unique situation and answered all my questions patiently.

I had a great experience working with the Sobirov Law Firm. The entire team was professional, prompt, and meticulous in their approach. We started working with them on LMIA under GTS of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. The time it took from creation of an Incorporation to submission and approval of our application was around 8 weeks. Work Permit approval took another 2 weeks. They also helped us get shared office space since it was a new experience for us. They guided us in finding a payroll service provider and a realtor to help with the relocation of the foreign employee. My sincere thanks to Feruza Djamalova and Rakhmad Sobirov (Attorneys), and Yulia Kan (Team Lead).
