No You don't need that much , You need only 51% of existing business . For example if business is of 300K you need 153K to get partnership

There is no criteria of investment, I know some people who got approved by only putting $10,000 into a bank account

OK. Let me get this straight. You know someone who put $10,000 into a bank account, submitted an LMIA application (no business, no business plan, no net worth evaluation, no business background, didn't establish a company or show in any way that she was actively engaged in business) and she was approved for an O/O LMIA. Is that what you're claiming?
