Canada is rapidly becoming the top destination for business expansion in the world. It has the lowest average overall tax rate on new business investment in the G7, the strongest growth of all the G7 countries last year, the most highly educated workforce in the OECD, and a very business friendly regulatory framework. Canada has secured free trade agreements with countries representing nearly two-thirds of the world’s total GDP and is the only G7 country with FTA concluded with every other G7 country. Canada is the perfect gateway to the global economy.
Expansion to Canada is easy but succeeding in Canada is not. Depending on the nature and size of your business there are numerous considerations that you have to account for before entering the Canadian market. Regardless of whether you are transferring from a commonwealth jurisdiction with similar laws and regulations or from a civil law jurisdiction with different regulatory schemes, we will provide you with accurate assessments, and tailored solutions to ensure your successful entry into the Canadian market.
Canadian immigration policy is mainly designed to facilitate economic growth for Canada. It achieves that purpose through a variety of programs that facilitate global recruitment for Canadian companies as well as providing opportunities for foreign businesses and their owners/managers eyeing Canada for expansion.
At SILAW we focus both on the business and the people running the business. We help business owners/managers identify strategic expansion opportunities in Canada, and help them plan their permanent settlement in Canada. Currently the International Mobility Program offers speedy pathways for qualified business people to enter Canada to set up branches or subsidiaries for their enterprises. Their immediate family members can also accompany them to Canada and enjoy free health care, free primary and secondary education, and a right to work for any employer. For those planning to settle in Canada permanently, we provide a strategic permanent residency plan.
