The eligibility requirements for the Entrepreneur stream depend on where in Ontario the business is being to be proposed and in recent reforms they have also lowered minimum net worth and investment requirements according to their rules.
The required net worth for the preferred business within the Greater Toronto Area is now $800,000, down from $1.5 million. The required investment is now lowered to $600,000 down from $1 million.
The Entrepreneurs looking outside the Greater Toronto Area must need $400, 00 in net worth instead of $800,000 and now they need a minimum investment of $200,000 instead of $500, 00.
The immigration candidates need 24 months of business experience as an owner or senior manager within the past 60 months where previously the candidates needed 36 months of experience within the same timeframe and please visit this website for further updates.
