The federal government is moving to entrench an immigration pilot project known as the Start-up Visa Program, which offers permanent residency to foreign entrepreneurs who agree to bring their companies to Canada. Due to its successes, Start-up Visa pilot Program will become a regular Program attracting entrepreneurs to Canada
Selection criteria for the pilot are as follows:
Before a foreign entrepreneur (or an entrepreneurial team of up to five individuals) applies under Start-up Visa, they must contact and receive support from a designated entity. If a designated entity decides to support their business, it will provide them with a letter of support. The designated entity will also send a commitment certificate directly to IRCC. Once the application package is received, IRCC will assess the application and may submit certain business proposals to an industry association for peer review as needed.
