Owner/Operator Work Permit

For business owners seeking to immigrate to Canada, the government now offers the option of obtaining an Owner/Operator work permit.

In order to qualify for this permit, a foreign national must:

  • Demonstrate a level of controlling interest in the business, (e.g. be a sole proprietor or a majority shareholder);
  • demonstrate that such temporary entry will result in the creation or retention of employment opportunities for Canadians and permanent residents and/or skills transfer to Canadians and permanent residents; and,
  • Not be able to be dismissed.

In other words, prospective business owners are selected based on their ability to create jobs for themselves, and for other Canadians. They are also valued for their business knowledge and financial capital.

CanadaPass is here to assist business owners in obtaining an owner/operator work permit. We will help you establish your business in Canada through this program. Not only that, but once you have obtained your work permit, and built some of your work experience within the country, we will also help you apply for your permanent residency. CanadaPass provides assistance for every step of the way.
