Ontario to come up with new changes for Entrepreneur Immigration

Ontario released new details of proposed changes to Entrepreneur Stream on April 19, 2019. In its budget, the minimum threshold for the OINP’s Entrepreneur Stream will be reduced by half or even more than half of the current requirements. The Ontario government says doing so will “make Ontario more competitive with other provinces” and expand the province’s pool of entrepreneurial candidates.

There are three main changes including the requirements of minimum net worth, the minimum investment, and the minimum number of employees.

If the business is established within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), the minimum net worth will be reduced from 1,500,000 to 800,000; the minimum investment will be reduced from 1,000,000 to 600,000; and a minimum of two permanent, full-time jobs for Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada must be created. 

If the business is established outside the GTA or in the Information and Communications Technology / Digital Communications sector regardless of location, the minimum net worth will be reduced from 800,000 to 400,000; the minimum investment thresholds will be reduced from 500,000 to 200,000; and only one permanent, full-time jobs for Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada must be created. 

Immigration pilot for smaller communities

The budget also says the government would launch an immigration pilot program in smaller communities in the northern and rural area to bring highly skilled immigrants to these communities. It is like the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIPP), which allowed the four Atlantic provinces to nominate up 2,500 foreign workers and international students for permanent residence in 2018. The government says the pilot programme was aimed at “spread the benefits of immigration to smaller communities.” The smaller communities are those either a city with a population of 50,000 or less, located at least 75 kilometres away from the core of a metropolitan area of 100,000 or more or a city of up to 200,000 people that qualify as remote.

As one of the most popular provinces for immigrants, these big reforms will surely attract more entrepreneurs to Ontario. If you are interested in this program, you are welcome to contact our professional Canada Immigration Consultants for more information.

Agri-Food industry immigration pilot

Canada to launch the Agri-Food industry immigration pilot

The Canadian government will launch the Agri-Food industry immigration pilot in the second half of 2019. The pilot will run for three years and has 2,750 allocations each year. It is designed to support the growth of Canada’s agri-food sector. 

In its Budget 2019, the Government of Canada stated: “To help the agri-food sector meet Canada’s ambitious export targets and attract and retain needed labour, the federal government will launch a three-year immigration pilot to bring in full time, non-seasonal agricultural workers that will include a pathway to permanent residency.”

The Agri-Food industry immigration pilot is an upgraded version of the temporary foreign agricultural worker visa, which allows temporary agricultural workers to work in Canada for a short period. However, it requires them to return to their original place of residence to renew their visas every year. Therefore, becoming a permanent resident is almost impossible. 

The new program: Agri-Food industry immigration pilot will issue Canadian agricultural workers a three-year visa, which will give the foreign agricultural workers enough time to get their permanent resident status in Canada. 

The Canadian government has not announced the specific launch time. At present, it is known that the pilot does not require English scores and funds. As long as you can prove that you are qualified for the agricultural jobs in Canada, you can apply for it.

Masters Graduate Stream

Ontario reopened and paused Masters Graduate Stream on the same day

Ontario reopened its Masters Graduate Stream (MGS) to 667 new registrations on Tuesday, April 30 and quickly reached its allocation in just a few hours.

The total intake limit of the MGS is 1000 in 2019. It was last opened on Tuesday, March 5th at 10:00 a.m. with an intake limit of 1,000 registrations. Due to technical issues, the stream was closed at 11:42 a.m. Only a total of 333 candidates successfully submitted their applications within1 hour and 42 minutes.

The MGS is designed for international students with an eligible Ontario master’s degree to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. It is one of the most popular immigration streams in Ontario because it does not require a job offer from an Ontario employer. Due to limited immigration allocation and a competitive employment environment, many graduates have to leave Ontario to seek immigration opportunities in other provinces.
