The new Graduate Entrepreneur Stream will work on a 4-stage process, where candidates need to submit an EOI (Expression of Interest) to receive an Invitation to Apply, and then start their business while on a Post-Graduation Work Permit and then nominated for Canada PR.
Important criteria are that applicants have finished a post-secondary diploma or degree of a minimum of two years in length and also have a valid P.G.W.P.
Applicants need to own a minimum of a third of the business and are actively engaged in its operation. They need to demonstrate the business is making the minimum demanded revenue after a minimum of one year of operation to be eligible for nomination from the province.
It is a new immigration pathway that will help hold international students who have often now happily integrated into communities in the province of Saskatchewan said by Jeremy Harrison, Immigration & Career Training Minister.
It will also support to create new firms and jobs, as well as put Saskatchewan province competitive in bringing and retaining foreign students and their investment.
