Cape Breton, a small island on the eastern end of the Nova Scotia region in Canada. The Farmer’s Daughter Country Market, the bakery and general store, is the main business in the area and is trying to expand. In principle, they have all the things they need, with one exception: the people.
This island, with its unique nature and a healthy environment, has a lot to offer: there are many places of tourist interest, children’s clubs, churches and others. The current population is 150,000 people, but has been decreasing for years.
After hiring all local workforce, the Farmers’ Daughter Country Market posted an ad on the Facebook page that looks too good to be true: any person willing to move to the city will get a job and two hectares of land.
The only hindrance seems to be the Canadian law, which says that only North American States residents can apply for such a position; surely, a green card can solve this problem, and to get the green card, residents need two things: an invitation from a Canadian employer approved by the Labor Ministry, and a temporary work permit to be obtained after obtaining the visa.
