With many Alberta business owners retiring, there are increasing numbers of opportunities to purchase and take over existing businesses in the province.
Business Finders understands talented immigrants come to Canada every year with extensive business experience and financial resources. Struggling to find a decent job, lacking the required “Canadian Experience”, Business Finders will have business opportunities for small business ownership and will provide an ideal solution to start a new dream career in Canada.
The Business Immigration Program seeks to attract experienced businesspeople to Canada who will support the development of a strong and prosperous Canadian economy.
How does it work?
There are regulations over immigrants expanding or starting businesses in Alberta. There are many programs available that allow investors to get the permission they require to purchase a business. Through theses programs, it is possible to fast-track the procedure to get immigrant permanent resident statuses to allow them to do business in the region. Alberta facilitates the selection of candidates who possess the highest value to the area. It is a way to make it less complex to find potential investors who will add more to the economy.
Business Finders works with various immigration consultants to provide entrepreneurs that are immigrating to Alberta with a suitable business purchase according to the immigrant's background and preference. We have experience with the programs available and have successfully assisted in the purchases for immigrants in the Entrepreneur Programs.
