Provincial Nominee Investor Visa Canada

Canada recognizes that employers play a critical role in economic success. For many employers, newcomers to Canada are a valuable source of skilled workers and professionals. The Provincial Nominee Investor Visas have been created to assist multinational firms establishing or expanding their businesses in Canada and wanting to bring key executives, managers or employees to work in their operations.
