Strategic Recruitment Stream
Let’s say there is a client in India that wants to move $777,777 over to Canada. They want to know the best program for their child to get a work permit (or PR) in Canada if they invest that money.
What type of job skills must the child have? Express entry would be a good option but the child needs to have some experience. This would be either in Canada or if not in Canada, skilled work experience elsewhere.
If the child has had one continuous year of work experience, then there is a wide range of jobs that qualify under that. The immigration lawyer would first want to establish if she has ever worked for one full year. If not, then a work permit would likely be the next best option.
How do they wish to invest their money, i.e invest in/run a business? Or just purchase real estate? Please let the lawyer know then they will look into this further and get you an answer.
The person would be limited if she does not have any particular work experience or skilled trades. Further, if they didn’t have any schooling/work inside Canada already. It would just be a general work permit. This would either be open or for a specific employer (if she can secure a job prior to application). Working in Canada for one year can open the option to apply for PR after that time period.
Apply For Permanent Residence
If they don’t have quality work experience (India) or school/work within Canada, they apply for a work permit. $2500 USD plus a $1000 success fee would be the legal fees for this.
If they do have work experience or school within Canada, apply express entry $5000 USD.
As for the entrepreneur programs, that is an option especially if someone has a lot of money to invest. Those programs require them to start a business and employ Canadian individuals, however. So if that is something they are interested in that would work. Some entrepreneur programs allow for franchises to be an option as to a business to invest in. Other provinces do not allow franchises to be a business option.

Alberta Nomination Program
We’ve done quite a bit of research into different immigration programs. They have to be actively involved in the day-to-day running of the business for entrepreneur programs. Also, there are often issues with want-to-be immigrants from India not being able to prove assets in India for a variety of reasons. A lot of money that comes from overseas is “grey money.”
A work permit is often the easiest. Other provinces also have some programs where you can almost buy your way in. However, they are looking more closely at those applications right now. There is one program where there is a repayable loan to the Quebec government. The other option is a non-repayable loan.
Temporary Foreign Workers
In other provinces, there are good options under the Entrepreneur program (under PNP umbrella). The program has a list of ineligible programs. They can purchase an existing business but must have 33.3% ownership. With the entrepreneur program, the options for businesses are to either open a new business or purchase an existing one. The business in question also needs to be in operation for five years.
Not to simply invest in an existing business – only create or out-right buy.
