4. The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP)
The PNP route is becoming more and more popular for immigrating to Canada. Canadian provinces such as Alberta, Ontario, British Columbia and others have developed their own immigration programs that often lead to an accelerated process. However, the PNP category usually requires applicants to be in the respective provinces upon arrival in Canada. In addition, most PNPs require a job offer from a Canadian employer to qualify.
5. Canadian Investor Immigration
The investor category is intended for wealthy private individuals who own or have managed companies abroad. By enabling experienced businessmen to invest in the Canadian economy, they contribute to Canada’s overall growth and prosperity. Canada has two main investor programs: The Federal Investor Program and the Quebec Program. Both programs are somewhat similar and require applicants to have high net assets and make a large investment in a licensed mutual fund for a period of 5 years. Investor immigrants can bring their spouses and children as relatives to their applications.
