British Columbia permanently adopts Entrepreneur Regional Pilot Program

Dear future neighbour,

British Columbia has permanently integrated the Entrepreneur Regional Pilot Program into its Provincial Nominee Program, now called the Entrepreneur Immigration Regional Stream, offering newcomers a new option to start businesses and settle in the province.

Entrepreneur Immigration Programs in British Columbia

Entrepreneur immigration programs in the BC PNP offer international entrepreneurs a pathway to start businesses and settle in B.C., focusing on innovation and economic growth. Initially, accepted applicants receive temporary status, transitioning to permanent residence once their business is established.

EI Regional Stream Overview and Eligibility

The EI Regional Stream targets entrepreneurs aiming to start businesses in small communities to boost regional development. Communities identify priority business types, and candidates must visit and engage with these communities early on.

Application Process for the EI Regional Stream

Entrepreneurs must secure a community referral to register and apply under the EI Regional Stream, ensuring alignment with local business priorities and facilitating their settlement and business initiation in the community.

To be eligible for the program, entrepreneurs must:

– Start a new business that matches the community’s priorities
– Show business or management experience
– Have a personal net worth over $300,000 CAD
– Invest at least $100,000 CAD in the business
– Create at least one full-time job for a Canadian citizen or PR
– Have at least CLB level 4 language proficiency
– Have or be eligible for legal status in Canada
– Be lawfully admitted to their current country of residence

Candidates that meet the criteria and have the needed business experience can contact the community using the profile page information.
