Vancouver Island falls within the Entrepreneur Immigration Stream of the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program. These Immigration programs normally require a smaller investment amount than the lower mainland area of BC. The Provincial Nominee Program encourages business growth and investors who can edify our smaller communities. Pathway to Canada creates intelligent solutions for your immigration requirements by partnering with established business brokerages, property managers, and commercial real estate agents in order to offer our clients a unique advantage in buying businesses, homes, and to assist with your immigration application under either provincial or federal programs. Our whole business is network driven, which enables us to achieve great results and deliver exclusive value to our clients for their immigration needs.
