Business Immigration and Canadian PR

Are you an entrepreneur? Are you self employed? Do you wish to immigrate to Canada as a permanent resident (PR)? There are multiple pathways for the entrepreneur and self-employed to become a Canadian PR and a few popular programs are listed below:
 
Self Employed Stream
 
The Self-Employed stream is specifically for those with experience in cultural or athletics and is willing to make a significant contribution to the cultural or athletic life of Canada. Example professions are musicians, singers, dancers, painters, directors, choreographers, editors, journalists, librarians, translators, producers, photographers, graphic arts technicians, film and video camera operators, interior designers, graphic designers, artisans, athletes, coaches, program leaders and instructors in recreation, sports, and fitness, etc.
 
Though prior business experience in their field is not mandatory, the intention to be self-employed in Canada after obtaining PR is essential.
 
Owner Operator Stream
 
Under the owner-operator stream, a business immigrant buys a business at their province of choice, receives a works permit, and then applies for permanent residence under the Federal Express Entry program. To qualify as an owner-operator the foreign investor must have verifiable and transferable management experience, sufficient assets to purchase the Canadian business, Sufficient English or French language skills, and own more than 50% of the purchased business. There is no wait time and the business immigrant with his family can apply for permanent residence during the first year of working in Canada
 
 
Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Business Immigration Stream
 
A PNP allows a province to nominate a business immigrant applicant for Canadian PR. The minimum investment and net worth vary according to the province. Under this stream, the entrepreneur initially buys/sets up a business in a province, receives a work permit, and moves into the province to run the business. After a period, depending on the province, upon meeting the necessary conditions, the applicant can apply for Canadian PR.

DIY application issues #1

 

A few months ago, I was approached by a DIY client who had his permanent resident card renewal application returned thrice during the last one year. One look at the documents and I knew why it was being returned so frequently. We resubmitted the documents with the correct paperwork and today the client received the renewed PR card. His spontaneous statement on receipt of the PR card was ” Thank you so much. I should have come to you first!”

Do the application yourself if you are familiar with documentation steps and can understand Canadian immigration legal terminology. Else contact an authorized immigration consultant (https://iccrc-crcic.ca/find-a-professional/) to help you navigate the complex world of Canadian Immigration.

Temporary Resident Visa Refused/Rejected – What Next?

You received that dreaded letter from IRCC informing that your visa for visiting/ studying/ working in Canada has been rejected/refused.

Most  refusals will be due to one or a combination of the following:

  • Inadequate documentation
  • The officer is concerned with your intent for visa
  • Insufficient funds for your stay in Canada
  • Travel History
  • Ties to Home Country & Canada
  • Inadmissibility – Medical or Criminal
  • Misrepresentation – Falsified Documents or Information

Occasionally the officers may have other concerns that do not fall in one of the above parameters, and which will have to be addressed on an individual basis.

Your Canadian dream has been shattered, what next? Don’t give up or rush to reapply immediately without understanding the actual reasons for refusal/rejection.

Follow these steps and find success in your next attempt:

  • Seek professional assistance – contact an ICCRC licensed Immigration Consultant and discuss your case in detail. Now is the time to be prudent and seek expert help.
  • Make a request under the Access to Information and Privacy Act(ATIP) to get the actual reasons for refusal. The letter that you usually get is a generic one that does not give you specific details about your case in particular. Your licensed consultant can help you apply for and obtain the GCMS notes under ATIP for a fee. This is a crucial step and essential for your success during the reapplication process.
  • Address concerns found in the GCMS notes and submit a fresh application with detailed explanations. Your licensed consultant will be able to help you navigate this step.
  • Alternately, if you feel the concerns raised in the GCMS notes are not valid, and they have already been addressed, then consider filing an application for Leave and Judicial Review. Your licensed consultant cannot represent you in Federal Court but will refer you to a professional Immigration Lawyer who is an expert with such court cases.

If you plan to apply for a Temporary Resident Visa or if your visa has been rejected/refused, contact us today! Hiring a licensed professional can make a huge difference in the quality of your application.

We would love to help you and guide you through the application process to increase your chance of getting the coveted Canadian Visa stamped on your passports.

YOUR SUCCESS IS OUR SUCCESS.

WES Credential Evaluation – India document requirement changes

 

With effect from Dec 1, 2018, WES has modified its requirement for applicants educated in India.

Due to an increase in fraudulent documents, WES has now decided to only accept documents in sealed envelopes mailed directly by the institutions and will reject documents in sealed envelopes forwarded by the applicants themselves or other third parties.

Therefore, please ask your institution to mail your attested documents directly to WES in a sealed envelope with the institution stamp/seal on the back flap.  Kindly remember, they have to mail the envelope themselves and should not give it to you or a third party to mail it to WES.

More information on this policy change can be found on the official WES website.

Please contact Alexander Immigration Services for all your immigration needs. We will help you navigate successfully through the complicated world of Canadian Immigration.
