Start-Up Visa

Canada’s start-up visa program helps immigrant entrepreneurs to start a business in Canada by enabling overseas business owners and their families to apply for permanent residency.

To settle abroad, one needs to have a business and be innovative. If you’re both of those things, then it’s time for your next big adventure! Our Startup Visa Program allows entrepreneurs with promising ideas the opportunity to establish themselves in many countries, especially Canada – where they can get the funding they want from successful organizations, while learning how to best operate their businesses as well.

The Startup Visa is a conditional temporary residence permit for various countries. If certain conditions are met, it will become a permanent residence visa. Start-ups are a big boom in the economy of any country. Smart countries around the world are aware of this.  In response to this, the government provides fast citizenship and residence permits for start-ups through a visa program. These programs are aimed at people with outstanding ideas and entrepreneurial enthusiasm.


There are some basic requirements to apply for a startup visa in Canada;

  1. An applicant must have a qualifying business.
  2. Letter of support from a designated organization is also required to apply for a Canadian Startup visa.
  3. An applicant must have sufficient settlement funds to live in Canada
  4. The most important is language proficiency; an applicant must fulfill the language requirements.
  5. Educational requirements are also important. An applicant must have at least one year of post-secondary education to apply to a startup visa program.

In order to apply for the Startup Visa program, documents are required to prove that the applicant meets the core requirements of the program. Biometric data and certified translations of documents that are not in English or French are also required. Almost 12 to 16 months are required to process the startup visa program, but once the application is approved, the applicant and their family receive the permanent residency status in Canada.
