    Greetings and Good Day,

    My question is does any of your programs help with migrating to Canada under a Entrepreneur Contract or License Agreement?

    A contract or license agreement which allows someone to travel to Canada and possibly get their family Permanent Residency in Canada, by way of providing New Technological Inventions to Canadian Companies?

    Such As: Alternate Agricultural Food Processing for Farm Animals/ And the Future Technology in Solar Panel energy consumption and continuation and many more..

    Best and High Regards,

    Christopher Salmon
