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.
