Canadian provinces and territories have their own immigration programs "streams" through which they target business people (PNPs [Provincial Nominee Programs]).
Prospective business immigrants with a sufficiently high score, necessary skills, education, business work experience, and viable business concept will be invited to establish and operate a business concept in the province.
This process is normally happening through several stages of (1) expressing interest to apply under the provincial business immigration program, (2) acceptance to the program and applying for a work permit, (3) establishing and operating a business, (4) getting a provincial nomination for permanent residence, and (5) applying for permanent residence to IRCC [Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada].
