Canada continuously improves efforts to bring entrepreneurial foreigners to Canada. Having just two business programs at the federal level – the Start-Up visa and the Self-Employed Persons Program (SEPP), the Federal government delegated the mission to attract business-immigrants to the provinces. So far, as of August 31, Canada admitted 3,595 business immigrants in 2019. Almost 68.5% of them or 2,465 are investors within the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP). The federal government had closed the Federal Investor Program in 2014. The rest of the business-immigrants of this year immigrated as self-employed (650), start-up owners (365), and entrepreneurs via the PNP streams (105).
