Immigrate To Canada Through Quebec Express Entry


QUEBEC EXPRESS ENTRY PROGRAM Quebec Express Entry was just a matter of time until the program will launch.

Canadian Start-Up Visa Program Wins As US Backs Down


Canadian Start-Up Visa Program Wins Thinking about immigrating to North America via entrepreneur program? Think Canada! In a recent announcement, the US Department of State seems to be wrapping up the Obama’s initiative called International Entrepreneur Rule. Under this initiative, a temporary residence was granted to immigrant entrepreneurs with promising start-up ideas. The move to cancel the initiative is dictated by the US Government belief that it “lacks sufficient protections for U.S. workers and investors, and is not the appropriate vehicle for attracting and retaining international entrepreneurs.” This leaves the world’s other leading economies, including Canada, well positioned to retain [...]
