The Start-Up Visa Program
Canada’s Start-Up Visa Program has been created to attract immigrant entrepreneurs and business owners who have the skills to come to Canada to build a successful business. This program is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to become a Canadian permanent resident for a business investor.
The Government of Canada looks for innovative businesses that can stimulate economic activity, create Canadian jobs, and have the potential to compete on a global scale.
The applicant’s value proposition scalability is an essential factor; however, performance agreements or success metrics are not a condition of obtaining permanent residence after the entrepreneur has obtained status in Canada.
