What are the changes introduced in the Entrepreneur category of British Columbia?

The changes have been introduced in the entrepreneur category of British Columbia, and these changes have come in effect from Jan 29, 2020. Thus, the applications which are already in processing will not be affected.

The changes introduced are in line with the integration of immigrants in Canada. The significant changes include -

  • The minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) requirement has been set at 4. The language requirement aligns with the Entrepreneur Immigration regional pilot.
  • The prospective Entrepreneur immigration base category candidate will not be able to propose the key staff in its application. Earlier, the entrepreneurs were allowed to recommend key staff members who had expertise as per the proposed business. But over four years from July 2015 to Nov 2019, there was only 4 percent of entrepreneurs that included the critical staff.
