Comparison Chart, Canada Provincial Business Immigration

Canada has 10 Provinces and each province has its own requirements with respect to Business Immigration or investor visas. This article compares all the Canadian provinces with respect to their investment criteria for business visas so that the applicants may decide which province suits their pockets and budgets.

Some provinces require an applicant to have less net worth than the others. Surprisingly,  the range of net worth requirement from province to province is between $250,000 to $16,00,000.

However, it must be noted that the Canada Federal Business Immigration Program, which is a subject matter of another article, requires much more net worth than most provincial business immigration programs. The Canada Investor Visa requires a net worth of $1.6 million, of which, half must be deposited with the government for 5 years without interest.
