Canadian work permit options for entrepreneurs in 2021

Canada has made some policy changes affecting immigration pathways for entrepreneurs.

In recent weeks, Canada announced that the Owner/Operator category under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) will be removed on April 1, 2021. This category allowed applicants to apply for a work permit without having to do the advertising requirement of the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

There are also some new instructions affecting Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) Investors. As of January 1, Canada is not processing U.K. applicants under this program. Instead, they will be processed under the new Canada-UK Trade Continuity Agreement after it is ratified, which is expected to happen early this year. Until then, will have to be accompanied by an LMIA or meet the eligibility requirements of an LMIA-exempt work permit category.

Here are some of the other options for entrepreneurs who want to start a business in Canada.
