The Business Driven Nominee Program streams are designed to attract business expertise and investment capital to enhance the economic environment of the Northwest Territories. Prospective applicants submit applications on behalf of themselves.
Business Driven streams assist foreign nationals with the ability to establish, purchase, or invest in an existing business, selected primarily on the basis of its ability to create jobs for the foreign national and other Canadians. There are two categories under Business Driven stream:
- Entrepreneur Business
- Self-employed Business
Application process for both streams is the same, but each stream has specific criteria.
