The province of British Columbia, located in the west coast of Canada and well known for its beautiful weather (considering Canadian standards when it comes to weather), has 2 entrepreneur programs.


Entrepreneur Program in British Columbia

This article will concentrate on the Regional Pilot program which is less costly but requires a previous business trip to the province within 1 year before submitting the application. For most applicants, this means an additional cost for a business visa.

Nonetheless, the BC Regional Pilot program for entrepreneurs focuses on applicants who are interested in setting up a business in a rural community with less than 75,000 inhabitants. The program was specifically created to help develop those rural communities.

You will have to set up a business, manage it for at least 1 year, and then be eligible to apply for permanent residency. This is an active investment, not a passive one. You must actively manage the business.

For the details of the program, see the table below:
