Fear of the Unknown?
BC Business Broker Michael Naprawa sees increased interest from foreign investors looking to acquire a business in BC. At the same time, he's hearing from some Canadians concerned about an influx of immigrants. Who are these people? Will they be taking Canadian jobs?
Under the BC PNP (Provincial Nominee Program), an entrepreneur can apply to immigrate to Canada as a purchaser of an existing business. There are a number of criteria to be met before the application can be approved. Currently, the key requirements are:
A Regional Entrepreneur needs a personal net worth of at least $400,000 and must invest at least $200,000 in a business. They must commit to creating at least one job for Canadians or landed immigrants, and and clear Federal health and security checks.
Naprawa works with prospective immigrants and their agents to be sure applicants qualify. He asks about the applicant's background and skills to ensure a good 'fit'. Once he has brought the seller and prospective buyer together, he helps assemble supporting documents.
BC PNP deals take more time, but by bringing the right buyer and the right business together, Naprawa knows the investor will be well on the way to becoming a permanent resident contributing to BC's economy, maintaining existing jobs, and creating new jobs for Canadians.
