Default Thoughts on doing it this way?

We are a family looking to emigrate to Nova Scotia, but have read that the skilled worker route takes 3 to 4 years.
I have come up with what may be a quicker route:
Get a one year work permit, buy a business while out there, then apply to emigrate?
Not sure if this is the right way to do things, maybe some-one could advise me, thankyou.

If you can get a job and the work permit, then just use that to apply to emigrate. No need to buy a business. Its not like as the owner of a business you could use that to get work permits or whatever for family..CIC and service canada would cotton on to that pretty quickly.

If you want to buy a business and you have the money, then why not check out the investor / entrepreneur type Federal and provincial programs.

Yes we would like to buy a business, or set one up.
