Canada and Quebec propose two main programs of economic immigration:
Skilled workers: Selection criteria are based on education, age, linguistic abilities in English and French, work experience, the presence of children, the characteristics of your accompanying spouse if applicable, and many others.
Business Immigration: These programs vary greatly across Canada, as they are mostly supported by the provinces. Quebec has the most comprehensive business immigration program and includes sub categories of self-employed workers, entrepreneurs and investors. All sub-categories will require business experience and a certain net worth.
