Most of the applicants who immigrate to Canada choose to settle there, so what are the top start-up business opportunities for immigrants in Canada?

Immigrating to Canada and starting a business

The advantage of immigrating to any country is that you can work and start business there, and Canada is no exception. However, the biggest problem in Canada is that it has abundant resources but relatively small population, so the labour force is very scarce and the chance of finding a job that you are satisfied with is relatively high. In addition to working, starting a business is also a good option. For Chinese immigrants to Canada, if they choose to start their own business, what are the best business opportunities?


1. Food and Beverage Industry

“Food is the order of the day”, and eating is something that everyone does many times a day. What are some of the more popular restaurants in Canada?

– Popular Hot Pot Restaurants

– Hong Kong Style Restaurants

Hong Kong style dining is popular among all cultures in Canada, as they serve not only Chinese food, but all some Hong Kong style western food, which is also considered as a civilian dining place. Therefore, this is also a good business to start.

2. Automotive Service Industry

In addition, there are business opportunities in Canada for the automotive service industry. Canada is a vast country with a very large territory and many places are far away from each other, so it is relatively difficult to get around without a car.

3. Fitness Industry

Canadians are very fitness conscious, especially in the cold winter months. Outdoor exercise seems to be a bit unfeasible, so indoor fitness is the best option. There is great potential for the development of related industries, and with people’s concern for health and wellness, fitness-related industries can be a great business opportunity.

Labour cost in Canada is relatively high, so it is not so cheap to get a haircut in Canada. So there is always business opportunities if you immigrate to Canada and work in the beauty industry.

The business atmosphere in Canada is strong, and the policy conditions are relatively lenient, so as long as you choose the right industry, you can definitely earn a living in Canada.
