Vancouver (April 2007) – Pacific Corridor Enterprise Council (PACE), in partnership with British Columbia Institute of Technology, and International Migration Services Ltd. is hosting its annual Cross Border Forum on Wednesday May 16 at the Vancouver Terminal City Club (837 West Hastings Street)

The post 9-11 era has been fraught with headlines that inevitably talk about reducing or tightening the reigns on immigration to the United States. This year’s forum, entitled “Back to Business”, instead, focuses on the immigration opportunities for individuals and corporations.

Panel topics include the US E1 and E2 Business Visas and the EB-5 Immigrant Investor program which enables foreign investors to file applications for Green Cards upon making a $500,000 investment into a qualifying ‘regional center.’ Representatives from HSBC Capital (Canada) Inc. will also be on hand to provide an overview of the Canadian Immigrant Investor Program.

Past seminars have included presentations by some of the preeminent Immigration attorneys in the United States. This year, organizers are proud to have Lincoln Stone, Editor-in-Chief of ‘Immigration Options for Investors and Entrepreneurs,’ as the Special Guest Speaker.

In addition, senior officials from the United States consulate will be in attendance to provide insight into application procedures and adjudication standards.

Cost, for the half-day event is $100 (including GST) and includes breakfast, and registration materials.

For more information about the forum, or to register, please contact Judy Rendek at 604 412-7767 or visit our website at: http://www.bcit.ca/business/venture/crossborder/
