Notes in Chinese re Canada Business Immigration Options

愿意投资或管理企业的商家有多项移民选择。BC省和加拿大其他省份都有各自的省提名计划,可允许商家在省内做投资,取得工作签证,并有资格申请移民。

加拿大联邦政府正在重整现有的被动性投资移民计划,提议2013年初开始实行新的企业家投资移民计划。

我们可以评估您的背景和商务目标,然后协助您选择最合适的商业移民选项。从1990年至今我们曾帮助不同商家移民加拿大,我们可以指导您走过申请过程的每一步。 [quote from CanadaVisaLaw.com/ch 2013.10.02 ]
