Unfortunately, that will not work.

Opening a business does not give you grounds for permanent residency. You would have to find grounds. The most common one and perhaps the only realistic one right now would be for you to immigrate under the express entry program for skilled workers. If you are a skilled worker you should read this information:

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
