LMIA Internation Mobility Program - C11 Entrepreneur Business Plan
In many instances, when a company seeks to hire a foreign worker or a foreign worker desires to enter Canada to work, a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) must be completed. This helps guarantee the economy and overall labour market are not impacted negatively.
There are a number of exceptions to the LMIA granted under the International Mobility Program (IMP). This includes LMIA-exemption code: C11 meant for self-employed workers and entrepreneurs who can bring a significant benefit to Canada culturally, socially or economically or will create opportunities for Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
Beyond demonstrating significant benefit, applicants must own more than 50% of the business in question and create a viable and stable business plan. This is one of only a few business immigration streams that have no minimum net worth requirement.
The best way to establish you meet all basic requirements and are able to satisfactorily bring significant benefit to the country is through a well-written business plan. Our team of immigration experts have years of experience, thousands of success stories and are ready to help you on your immigration journey.
