An enterprising couple from India have started a business in Edmonton, Alberta that has the community smiling and checks all the boxes for them to become permanent residents in Canada. Chetan and Roshni Bahl formed Heart to Home Meals in 2016, a food delivery service for senior citizens of the town. Since then the business has grown by 170%, and the Bahl’s have become an integral part of the community. By servicing a simple but important everyday need, good healthy meals, of the most important and often forgotten people of our societies, they have created an important role for themselves as well as made the community a better place. Their business also goes to show that thinking outside the box is what can help you create an effective business plan and apply to immigrate to Canada by way of starting your own business here.
Edmonton may be one of the most diverse cities in Canada. Nearly 25% of the local population are immigrants, 53% of which are economic immigrants with the remainder being family sponsored or refugees. The largest number of immigrants have arrived from the Philippines, followed closely by our heroes Chean and Rashni Bahl’s origin country of India, and then China. There are over 100 languages being spoken in Alberta, and if that doesn’t give an indication of our rich diversity, we don’t know what will.
