3. Business Immigration. The new and extremely popular Start-Up visa joins other immigration streams for investors and entrepreneurs who are looking to obtain permanent residency.

4. Skilled Worker Program. Using a points system, applicants for the Skilled Worker Program are assessed based on their ability to adapt to the Canadian work force. Language abilities, age, work experience, adaptability and education are all things that will be considered.
