How Can a Canadian Citizen Get a Green Card While on the Tn Visa and Owning 50% of a Start Up?

TN visa holders are unfortunately not permitted to apply for permanent residency (although there may be some strategic workarounds). Many TN visa holders wanting to apply for permanent residence request a change of status to an H-1B visa, which does permit applying for permanent residence.

No matter what, owning 50% of the company that would sponsor the permanent residency application will make it difficult to get an approval in most instances.
