Default Immigrating to Canada

I am a Canadian citizen and my wife is a permanent resident of Canada.

My brother-in-law (wife's brother), who is a US citizen, would like to come
to Canada to live and work by starting his own business. He presently has
his own thriving HVAC business in New Jersey. He is financially well
established as he has sufficient funds to start his own business in Canada.

He would like to know which immigration method he should use that may
expedite the processing of his application.

Should he immigrate as self-employed?

Can I sponsor him to immigrate to Canada?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Default Re: Immigrating to Canada

Unfortunately he cannot be sponsored. He will not qualify as self-employed
either - self-employed class is only for those who are self-employed in
cultural or artistic field or are accomplished athletes and will upon
immigration make a significant contribution to cultural activities or
athletics and for those who have farming experience and will purchase and
manage a farm in Canada.

Your brother-in-law may qualify as Entrepreneur is he has a net worth of at
least $300,000 (Canadian) and if his business experience in past 5 years
meets the definition of qualifying business experience.

The other option is a Skilled Workers (Independent) class if he can meet
selection criteria and reach or exceed pass mark in selection grid for that
class.

Please contact me directly by email for free evaluation of his chances and
possible options.
