BC PNP Entrepreneur Program

BC PNP Entrepreneur Program

The British Columbia Entrepreneur Program was designed to attract immigrants with a strong entrepreneur background and solid business experience. Applicants need to initially submit an "expression of interest," and then receive an invitation to apply (ITA) from the BC Provincial government prior to submitting the full application to the BC PNP Entrepreneur Program. These individuals must show their business plan and willingness to invest and operate a commercially-viable business that can contribute to the economic growth of the BC Province.

The BC PNP Entrepreneur Program provides many benefits for the successful candidate and the immediate family including issuance of work permits, study permits, access to universal health care, free education up to high school for dependents, and many more. This immigration stream will eventually enable the successful candidate and immediate family to apply for permanent residency, and then citizenship, after a certain amount of time.

Minimum Requirements for Entrepreneurs:

  • Personal net worth of at least $600,000 CAD (including cash, assets in bank accounts, fixed deposits, real properties, investments, etc).

  • Experience as an active business owner or senior manager with 100 percent ownership of the business for at least three of the past five years.

  • Submit a business concept that demonstrates an active and ongoing management role in the day-to-day operations of the proposed business and the creation of at least one new job in the proposed B.C. business; and

  • Personal investment of CAD $200,000 in eligible expenses.

  • Create at least one full-time job for a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
