Women Immigrant Entrepreneurs

Immigrant entrepreneurs  have emerged as key engines of growth for Canadian cities from Halifax to Vancouver in Canada. The Immigrant Entrepreneur Program seeks to attract experienced business persons who will own and actively manage businesses in Canada that contribute to the economy and create jobs.

Feel interested in this idea? Don’t wait. Just rush to make your application for Canada immigration to make the best of this rare opportunity of working in Canada.

The fee will be charged from immigrant entrepreneurs in Canada ( starting in Saskatchewan,) from October, 2010 onwards.  The latest step is being introduced to ensure that only those immigrants who have real interest in establishing a business   in Saskatchewan  are able to apply for Canadian immigration under this category, Rob Norris, Minister for Advanced Education, Employment and Labor stated.

Norris maintained that there were several applicants who were found to be applying for a Canadian business visa just to see how things move about.

Meanwhile, he clarified that the introduction of special fee of $2,500 for establishing a business in Saskatchewan is, in no way, a hindrance for the genuine applicants seeking a Canadian business visa.

The fee, added Norris, is just a sort of commitment from the aspiring immigrant entrepreneurs in Saskatchewan

Another program is The Diversity Works program is designed to help this problem in two ways. One stream will provide recruitment and human resources support to employers, especially small businesses, looking to hire skilled immigrants. It’s hoped 200 local firms will benefit from that help. The second stream will link newcomer entrepreneurs with Canadian mentors who will help them get started.

The program will launch at the end of this month with 15 mentor-mentee pairs, including Kaleu and area businessman James Radcliffe, of SCS Machine Services.

It’s a match Kaleu hopes will give him a chance to start manufacturing his ecological tools by linking his company name with an established player.

Diversity Works is financed by the federal and provincial governments. Other sponsors include Settlement and Integration Services Organization, Mohawk College, McMaster University’s DeGroote business school, the Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion, the city, John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, Volunteer Hamilton, the Hamilton Training Advisory Board and Scotiabank Group.

The initiative is one part of a broader Hamilton Immigration Strategy and Action Plan    aimed at helping newcomers fit in to their new country by strengthening settlement services, employment aid, encouraging foreign credential recognition and other aid.
