Canada has a decade old history of welcoming immigrants and is considered one of the world’s foremost destinations for relocation for people from all walks of life. Canada offers exclusive investment migration streams that allows Entrepreneurs, Experienced Business Owners, or Senior Business Managers to gain residency whilst establishing their own business or buying an existing business. A past study conducted by Statistics Canada has found that a majority of immigrants feel a sense of belonging in Canada.

The intra-company category permits international companies to temporarily transfer qualified employees to Canada for the purpose of improving management effectiveness, expanding Canadian exports, and enhancing competitiveness in overseas markets.
