Canadian startup visa

The Canadian startup visa is a visa that gives foreign entrepreneurs the opportunity to obtain permanent residence in Canada. This visa is one of the best and latest methods that the Canadian Immigration Department has considered to attract business owners and support new and creative ideas and start up a business in Canada.

To be eligible for this Canadian permanent residence program, you must introduce a creative business idea to the Canadian government so that you can receive a letter of support from a Canadian approved company. For startup visa, up to five applicants can obtain Canadian permanent residence through an innovative idea. One of these people is chosen as the main member. If any of the key members withdraw their application or are not accepted, the case of other applicants will also be closed.
