Under the umbrella of the Canadian Business and Investor Immigration is a program called the Canadian Start-Up Visa Program. This program is intended to attract foreign entrepreneurs who wish to establish new, high-growth businesses in Canada that will support innovation and job creation.
Start-ups that qualify to launch a new business in Canada can also obtain financing as well as Permanent Residency Status. Every year several people qualify through this stream.
There are several tech hubs in the large metros of Canada. If you are a start-up, this is your chance to launch it and have access to a large talent pool.
However, it is important to note that the application process to this stream is complicated and will require the guidance of an experienced immigration professional so that you do not lose of due to incomplete application.
This program is for entrepreneurs to build an innovative business with a potential to create jobs in Canada and compete globally. It is meant for start-ups in the early stages of their business.
The Start-Up Visa aims to connect entrepreneurs to entities in the private sector that have experience in working with start-ups and can provide the additional resources required to make the venture successful.
