I'm in a different boat as I have family there.. If I so wished I could take up residency in Canada tomorrow.

As far as your situation, If you have no family already living there you will need to prove that you can aid the economy.

Canadian taxes actually go toward helping its own citizens. I'd sleep a lot better knowing I wasn't paying to occupy sovereign nations and blow up children.

I used to watch a little canadian TV. This one station would poll people on the street when the currant war started. Most said Bush and Americans were A-holes for attacking Iraq. Then, the Canadian news showed footage of Canadian troops fighting in Iraq. It was such a surprise to the average Canadian...Too Funny.

They require a liquid net worth of $500,000 or so, last I checked.

It's been a while since I checked as I have a relative there and last I checked I was still listed as a landed immigrant in Canada.
I think though you need to be a profesional of some sort as well as having a specified net worth.
I'm sure though that there is a way.
I have often thought of returning to Canada to live.

I just found this:

"Business immigrants are expected to make a $400,000 investment or to own and manage businesses in Canada."

Interesting...

The Government of Canada does not provide financial support to new skilled worker immigrants.

You must show that you have enough money to support yourself and your dependants after you arrive in Canada. You cannot borrow this money from another person. You must be able to use this money to support your family.

You will need to provide proof of your funds when you submit your application for immigration.

The amount of money that you need to have to support your family is determined by the size of your family.

Number of
Family
Members Funds Required
(in Canadian dollars)
1 $10,168
2 $12,659
3 $15,563
4 $18,895
5 $21,431
6 $24,170
7 or more $26,910

You do not have to show that you have these funds if you have arranged employment in Canada.

How Much Money Should You Bring?

Find out how much it costs to live where you are planning to settle in Canada.

Bring as much money as possible to make moving and finding a home in Canada easier.
Disclosure of funds

If you are carrying more than CDN $10,000, tell a Canadian official when you arrive in Canada. If you do not tell an official, you may be fined or put in prison. These funds could be in the form of:

cash;
securities in bearer form (for example: stocks, bonds, debentures, treasury bills); or
negotiable instruments in bearer form (for example: bankers’ drafts, cheques, travellers’ cheques, money orders).

Let's say I have my own business and can easily raise the minimum $$ amount described above for my family size. Can I go?

Or does my business need to be worth $400,000 for me to qualify?

Anyone know the answer?

The Business Immigration Program seeks to attract experienced business people to Canada who will support the development of a strong and prosperous Canadian economy.

Business immigrants are expected to make a $400,000 investment or to own and manage businesses in Canada.

That's what I see.. so you have to make the investment..
Not really sure how this could work.. It's plausible that you could show that your business is already worth that much and therefore moving your business to Canada would satisy that investment..
Not real sure
I know Canada is in need of good businesses, so I'm sure there are loop holes.

That's an interesting approach as well.

Do you have to have a job lined up in Canada or do you simply need to be qualified? (And have $10k.)

If not, what's to stop me from entering as a skilled worker and instead running my own business? Is that legal?

Hmmm... the old brain cells are poppin' now. LOL

This might work for you.

Self-employed persons
The Self-Employed Persons Program seeks to attract applicants who have the intention and ability to become self-employed in Canada. Self-employed persons are required to have either (a) relevant experience that will enable them to make a significant contribution to the cultural or athletic life of Canada, or (b) experience in farm management and the intention and ability to purchase and manage a farm in Canada.

Thanks! I saw that, but I wonder how they determine the business worth. Ie. strictly the business assets or its earning potential... etc.

LOL.. yeah the brain is a running..
I'm not sure what kinds of checks the do..
Doubtfull that if they do check your employment status that they would do so for more than a year or so..
I think.. that you might want to call Canadian immigration and have a chat with them.
Canada is eager for immigrants and I have little doubt that whoever you talk to will try and find a way for you to get in if you so desire.

I'm not a farmer, so that part is out. But the first part is more than a little intriguing.

Thanks for a great start! I'll be doing some more research soon, and I'll post the results, if any.

Yeah lemme know what you find out.
There are times I do miss living there.
Like right now.. working as a quality control tech in a pre-stress plant in Bilox makes one long for the temperate summers of Canada.
