Canada-Immigrants In Business Enterprise Sector

In Wise5,  a recent study of immigrant entrepreneurs funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, researchers found that immigrants who succeeded in business often followed a similar pathway.  Immigrants did not start new businesses right after arrival.  Rather, they first adjusted to living in Canada and learned about Canadian business culture.  Like Maria Luisa, many  worked in their field of interest first, learning Canadian practices and preferences first-hand, and finding a mentor who advised and helped them.  Often they pursued some upgrading, including language courses and business seminars.

“Immigrants are pulling their weight in the economy, and are just as likely — and sometimes even more likely — than Canadian-born [residents] to be business owners,” says Beverly Rodrigez, a senior fellow with the Bevor Consulting Services. “You see that immigration has grown a lot, and so has immigrant business ownership.”
People have a hard time understanding how immigrants can come into the economy without displacing native…workers,” says Barbara Ujamaa,  graduate student of an  Entreprenuership Program, which co-released a version of the report highlighting Ontario local implications. “But they create their own niche…. These small businesses that crop up fulfill a need…and become job creators.”

Beverly in her dissertation  pointed out that in Ontario, immigrant business ownership is closely linked to immigrant labor, which have both increased dramatically over the last twenty years.

Immigrant labor is a good thing, because it attracts these small entrepreneurs to come and fill a niche in our economy,” Beverly added.

Across the country,  Barbara says, the diversity of these businesses is also impressive. In addition to bigger tech companies, there are a lot of “bread and butter businesses,”  she says. “Grocery stores, nail salons, gas stations…that I think are making a pretty big difference. In many places, that’s what defines a neighborhood.”

La Mexicana Tortilleria y Antojitos.http://tortillerialamexicana.ca/   is an example of  small business ownership by a  recent female and immigrant entreprenuer.

If you are thinking of starting a business, take some time to inform yourself before making a decision.  Most Canadian cities have small business centres that can help you assess the advantages and disadvantages of different types of business, including regulations, licencing and certification.  They can also provide direction about writing a business plan, which is required for bank loans.  Some settlement organizations offer business services if not you can always count with our customized service here.

How to Find Job Openings in Canada

How to Find Job Openings

In some countries, people find jobs primarily through the government or family members. In Canada self-reliance is more the rule, and secondly networking . It is important for everyone, including international students, to use a wide variety of resources to identify jobs.  About 20% of the jobs that exist in Canada are advertised in newspapers, trade magazines, or on the Internet. The other 80% of job openings are in the “hidden” job market and are never advertised. These positions are filled byword of mouth. For this reason, it is important to contact as many people as possible to find out about job openings. This technique is called networking.  Contacts include friends, classmates, neighbors, family members, professors, alumni, and community members.  Our blog  has many books on the job search and networking, as well as networking workshops and opportunities.

Working for International Companies

The best employment prospects for international students may be with international companies. International students are great assets to global organizations desiring language skills, respect for diversity, and/or knowledge of overseas economies.

Students must not work without permission. If they do, they may be asked to leave Canada. They will also need a social insurance number to work in Canada. 

Canada’s MBA programs are trying to attract the world’s top students—and keep them here as residents after they graduate. As of 2008, and we are in 2012 all students who complete a two-year Master’s degree automatically have the right to stay in the country and work for three years. They do not need to have a job lined up and are not restricted to working in a particular field.  80 per cent of foreign MBAs at the school choose to stay and work in Canada immediately after their MBAs.

How to Open a foreign Business in Canada

 Question: Can I Start a Small Business in Canada When I’m Not Living in Canada?

General answer:
Yes, starting a business in Canada when you’re nonresident in Canada is possible – but certain requirements have to be met.

Answer #1:

The short answer is that in order to come to Canada and start a business per regulations, a  non -Canadian must:

1. Prove that business immigrant have at least CDN $400,000 net worth or confirmation that you have access to a similar amount of funds from other sources; or $500,000* USD in special cases (see below).

2. Willingness to invest a minimum of$200,000 to establish a new enterprise (or to purchase no less than 33% of an existing business).

3.Plan a business that will clearly increase the Canadian Economy (no nonprofits).

4.Create at least 10 permanent full-time paycheck jobs for people that are already either Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents.

5. Intend to become a Permanent Resident or Canadian Citizen. Provisions can be made for the immigration of spouse and dependents in the immigration package as well, but they cannot be workers in the 10 new full-time jobs created. Check this “open house” in the provinve of Alberta  or check the  Self-Employed Farmer Stream *

Answer # 2:

As a non-canadian you need  a Canadian address (not a Post Office box, but a real Canadian address). Then you can start registering your new business in the province that it’s located in.

Then proce to which structure your business is going to be (sole proprietorship, partnership, etc). Or you could form a partnership with a Canadian living in Canada; then you can use his/her address for starting your business in Canada.

Another approach is to start an incorporated business. You would still need a Canadian address to enjoy the tax benefits of having a Canadian Controlled Private Corporation (see Types of Corporations in Canada and Corporate Tax), as well as have the correct number of Canadians on your Board of Directors and meet all the other requirements for such a corporation.

The correct number of resident Canadians depends on the jurisdiction you incorporate in. In Canada you may incorporate federally or provincially for starters. How to Incorporate Your Business in Canada Consultancy  explains the advantages and disadvantages of each of these forms of incorporation and the basic procedure.

“Foreign investors need to be aware of the residency requirements imposed on the directors of companies incorporated in Canada. The federal statute requires that 25 per cent of the directors be resident in Canada. In case there are fewer than four directors, then the CBCA (Canada Business Corporations Act) requires that one director be resident in Canada. Each province has different residency requirements and an investor wishing to incorporate in Canada should consider this issue. For example, some provinces do not impose residency requirements for directors (e.g.: New Brunswick, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Yukon).” ( See also  Invest In Canada)
These residency requirements for the directors of companies incorporated in Canada apply to all types of Canadian corporations, not just Canadian Controlled Private Corporations.

See Forms of Business Ownership in Canada for more on the differences between sole proprietorships, partnerships and corporations.

Everything written above assumes that you are going to continue to be a nonresident. If you are not a Canadian citizen you cannot just come to Canada and start a business. Instead, you would have to apply to immigrate to Canada through Canada’s Business Immigration Program or stay where you are but team up with one or more Canadian citizens or landed immigrants to start a business in Canada.
