Entrepreneurship Visa (C11)


Entrepreneurship Visa (C11) 

C11 Entrepreneur Work Permit allows entrepreneurs and self-employed individuals to apply for a work permit with intent for a temporary entry to Canada. This work permit is exempt from LMIA. It considers the social and cultural benefits your business can bring to Canada and its citizens.

The C11 Work permit does not grant permanent residency status to the applicant. This work permit allows you to set up your business in Canada, and then you can apply for permanent residence upon fulfilling the eligibility criteria of successfully managing a business for a minimum of 12 months, amongst others as prescribed by CICC.
