As an investor, you can apply for a Business Work Permit to come to Canada, and after 12 months, you can apply for your Permanent Residency Visa!

The Self-Employed Persons Program allows foreign nationals to settle in Canada as professional athletes, farmers, or artisans by having relevant experience in cultural activities or athletics and being willing and able to make a significant contribution to Canada's cultural or athletic sectors.
The Canada Start-Up Visa (SUV) program is for entrepreneurs with innovative business ideas that can create jobs for Canadians. They do not have to invest their own money. However, their business ideas or ventures must get the support of one or more designated organizations, such as venture capital funds, angel investor groups or business incubators. The business must operate in Canada, and the applicant must intend to reside outside the province of Quebec.
The Provincial Business / Entrepreneur Programs are managed by each province and territory to meet their labour and economic market needs. Each province has business/ entrepreneur streams and pathways for graduates and foreign nationals wishing to become permanent residents.
