The government of Canada has created a special category of work permit that offers a facilitated route through which majority owners of a company can acquire the right to work in Canada legally.

 

For many businesspersons around the world, Canada is the logical choice as the setting for embarking upon a new business venture or expanding an existing business. The favourable economic climate, the work ethic of the people, and the diversity of the population are all factors that contribute to making Canada an ideal environment in which to operate a business.

 

If business owners had to go through the same work permit process as other foreign nationals, they would most likely be dissuaded from considering Canada as a viable option for the location of their company.

 

The principal purpose of this category of work permit is to provide a facilitated route through which foreign nationals can enter the country to run their business. Quite understandably, most business owners are protective of their company and are adamant about personally overseeing its operation in order to ensure it is running according to his/her specifications. If entrepreneurs had to surrender the helm of their Canadian company due to a lengthy and convoluted work permit application process, most of them would look elsewhere to start or expand their business. Fortunately, the government of Canada has had the foresight to consider this issue and has effectively addressed it with this Owner/Operator work permit avenue.
