Canadian economy is unique among its peers. Canada’s rate of foreign investment attraction in the past years have showed an increase of more than 60%. This is despite the 40% drop of capital flow into other developed economies during the same period. This peculiarity is not random. It is the result of favorable business environment that Canadian economic policy has been forming consistently in the past decade. Currently Canada is a global pioneer in devising investment-friendly tax measures with the lowest marginal effective tax rate among G7. Canada has billions of government support for innovation, research and development through unique initiatives like SR&ED and IRAP. It has one of the most talented work-force and it enjoys an abundance of capital. All of that and much more make Canada a top destination for entrepreneurs looking for a reliable economy to start or buy a business.
Albeit Canada has great potential, navigation of its business and regulatory frameworks involves different challenges. At SILAW we will equip you with knowledge, advice and expertise that not only help you overcome those challenges but will secure you on the path to prosper in Canada and globally.
Canadian immigration apparatus is particularly focused on the attraction of entrepreneurs and business people who have high potentials of contributing to Canadian economy. Both the federal government and its provincial counterparts have put programs in place that target entrepreneurs that have business ownership and/or management experience. These programs incentivise qualified applicants to start or buy a business in Canada and settle here permanently.
At SILAW we currently focus on the most effective immigration programs both at the federal and provincial level. At the federal level, the Self-Employed program is designed to target individuals with experience in athletics or cultural activities. This is a point-based program that leads directly to Canadian permanent residency.
At the provincial level, almost every province in Canada has designed its own immigration programs that target people based on the unique needs of that province. Although every program is different, they are all similar in providing the applicant a conditional path to permanent residency.
