The Start Up Visa program is fast becoming one of Canada’s most sought-after business immigration programs for individuals who are willing to run their own business.
One of the program’s unique features is that applicants do not have to possess prior business ownership or senior management experience to qualify.
In fact, the program is open to anyone who can bring an innovative idea to market as long as it has the potential to create Canadian jobs and compete on a global scale. This means that even you have been an employee for your entire career, you might be able to immigrate to Canada through the Start Up Visa program.
To immigrate to Canada through the Start Up Visa program, you will need to secure a Commitment Certificate and Letter of Support from a designated organization (Business Incubator, Angel Investor, or Venture Capital Fund). We have deep contacts with designated organizations and will advise you on how to obtain your Letter of Support.
You can apply alone or in a group (up to a maximum of five) and must own at least 10 per cent of the voting rights to the start-up company. In addition, at least 51 per cent of the voting rights must be jointly owned between you and the designated organization that is supporting your application.
