The selection factors are summarized as follows:

Work Experience: Applicants are awarded up to 21 points.
Age: Applicants are awarded up to 10 points.

Whatever the number of points awarded, Canadian Immigration Visa Officers always have the discretion to accept or refuse an application based on a substituted evaluation.
In addition to meeting the above criteria, applicants must have a valid English Language Proficiency Test Result before filing for eligibility to apply for Permanent Residency through Federal Skilled Worker Program. Applicants must also show that they have sufficient settlement funds to support themselves and their dependents after arrival in Canada.

The Business class programs seek to attract experienced business people to Canada who will support the development of a strong and prosperous Canadian economy.
Business immigrants are expected to make a substantial investment (usually in the $800,000 CDN range but varies by province of destination) to own or manage businesses in Canada. Business immigrants are assessed through three main categories:
- • Investor: To apply under this category, you must have a net worth of at least $1,600,000 CDN, obtained as an owner, leader or running an industrial or commercial business and invest $800,000 CDN.
- • Entrepreneur: This applicant must have the intention and ability to establish, purchase or make a substantial investment in a business venture in Canada, which the person will manage on an active, resident and ongoing basis.
- • Self-Employed: This applicant must have the ability to be self-employed in Canada and to make a significant contribution to specified economic activities in Canada.
Investor class immigrants are expected to make a C$800,000 investment (which can be financed partially by non-recourse loans).
Each application can be made for only one class and cannot be changed once the application is submitted. The criteria you must meet to qualify are different for each class.
Investors are defined as persons who have controlled a qualifying business for at least two years within the previous five-year period, or have managed at least five full-time employees for the same time period, or have a combination of one year controlling a business and one year managing a minimum of five full-time employees. Because the Immigrant Investor Programs are structured and guaranteed by the government, 100% of your investment will be fully reimbursed after approximately 5 years and two months. These Programs are thus risk-free.
To qualify, you must:
- • Have a net worth of at least $1,600,000 CDN, obtained as an owner, leader or running an industrial or commercial company.
- • Have experience in running a business.
- • Invest an amount of $800,000 CDN (or less, through available financing plans) for a period of 5 years in a non-transferable bond, without interest, that is guaranteed by the government.
- • You and your family must meet the medical and security requirements.
A financing plan with incomparable advantages:
If you do not wish to make the regulatory deposit of $800,000 CDN, then a financing plan is the solution for you. At the current interest rates, you would only need about $240,000 CDN cash and you will still meet the requirements of the Immigrant Investors Program.
Characteristics and advantages of the business investors' category:
- • The candidates have no other conditions to meet in order to be admitted to Canada
- • The investors are not obliged to create a business in Canada
- • The investment is fully guaranteed by the provinces and territories that participate in the program.
- • Investors do not have to meet the residency requirements of the Entrepreneur and Self-Employed categories
- • Language proficiency is not essential as it is for other Business classes.
Persons who immigrate to Canada under the Provincial Nominee Program have the skills, education and work experience needed to make an immediate economic contribution to the province or territory that nominates them. They are ready to establish themselves successfully as permanent residents in Canada.
If you choose to immigrate to Canada as a provincial nominee, you must first apply to the province where you wish to settle and complete its provincial nomination process. The province will consider your application based on its immigration needs and your genuine intention to settle there.
If you are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, you can sponsor your spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, dependent child (including adopted child) or other eligible relative(s) (such as a parent or grandparent) to become a permanent resident.
If you sponsor a relative to come to Canada as a permanent resident, you are responsible for supporting your relative financially when he or she arrives. The process to sponsor your family begins when you, as a citizen or permanent resident in Canada, apply to be a sponsor.
There are two different processes for sponsoring your family. One process is used for sponsoring your spouse, conjugal or common-law partner and/or dependent children. Another process is used to sponsor other eligible relatives.
Under Canada immigration regulations, spouses and common-law partners of temporary foreign workers, who themselves want to work in Canada, will need an Open Work Permit. The holder of an Open Work Permit can work for any Canadian employer, without first having a confirmed offer of employment as it is not job-specific.
An Open Work Permit can by applied for by:
- the spouses or common-law partners of foreign temporary workers;
the spouses or common-law partners of foreign students;
international students who have graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution
To be eligible for an Open Work Permit, the spouse or common-law partner of a foreign temporary worker must prove that:
- the principal temporary foreign worker has work in Canada that is at a management level or a job in a professional occupation or as a technical or skilled tradesperson
the principal temporary foreign worker is permitted to work in Canada for a period of at least six months.
For spouses and common-law partners, Open Work Permits are generally issued with a validity date that coincides with the period of time that their spouse is permitted to work in Canada.
