The “Centre Local de développement des Pays-d’en-Haut” (CLD), a partner for your business immigration project in Québec. Don’t take any chances; put all the odds on your side!
Québec has put in place three immigration programs designed to facilitate the reception of businessmen who would like to immigrate, namely the Entrepreneur Program, the Investor Program and the Self-Employed Worker Program.
To prepare its draft immigration and successful integration in Quebec, please refer to the 5th edition of the guide Immigrating to Quebec, over 350 pages of information and resources, available on the Publications page.
If you want to immigrate to Québec but don’t know where to start, we propose a 4-step approach:
Collect information on the “MRC des Pays-d’en-Haut” and its business climate; consult our profile of the community; we’ll send you an information kit about the region.
Before anything else, we recommend that you take a fact-finding trip to Québec. Depending on the Immigration Program of your choice, this trip will allow you to come to grips with your business project and get a first-hand look at the main aspects of your business plan. This will help you support your project during the selection interview. The credibility and feasibility of planned projects are an important part of the selection process for business immigrants.
We invite you to discover the “MRC des Pays-d’en-Haut”, a region at the Heart of the Laurentians that has seduced Business Immigrants (VIDEO LINk) for the quality of life of its residents and its numerous business opportunities. As transactions involving business opportunities are often found amongst informal settings, accessing and joining business networks can only work in your favour. You can rely on us to help you evaluate these business opportunities.
We are your gateway to the region, whether you launch a new enterprise or acquire an existing one.
If your business destination is the “MRC des Pays-d’en-Haut”, we suggest you contact our Commissioner responsible for the reception of business immigrants. Several resources are at your disposal to help you prepare your Business Plan and learn the procedures required to start a business in Québec. We can also introduce you to various other interveners and partners who could prove useful during your planning.
