Business immigration programs are being praised for their success in the beautiful province of British Columbia (BC), as more and more new Canadians are making an impact on BC’s economy while enjoying the province’s high quality of life.

Since 2002, business immigration programs have been responsible for more than $603-million in investment in the province, as well as the creation of more than 2500 new jobs. However, it is not only the province that is benefitting from business immigration. Business immigrants extol the virtues of living in Canada’s gateway to the Pacific.

Business immigrants choose to settle in BC for a number of reasons. The province and its most well-know cities, Vancouver and Victoria, consistently appear at or near the top of the rankings in studies or surveys of the best places to live in the world. In addition, the province is home to the University of British Columbia, a respected university that the children of business immigrants frequently attend.
