Alberta Self Employed Farmer

The province of Alberta is a one of the best places in Canada to start a business. It’s home to Canada’s third most liveable city called named Calgary, but it is Alberta’s farmlands where the real opportunity for investment lies. Alberta is Canada’s second largest agricultural producer and its diverse landscape makes the soil perfect for harvesting various crops, rearing livestock and much more. As of now, if you’re looking to immigrate to the province of Canada through business immigration there is only one Investment Visa option available in Alberta – the Self Employed Farmer Stream.

The table below summarizes the Self Employed Farmer Stream:
