The Canadian Start-Up Visa

By Michael Niren June 4, 2013 1 min. read
Canadian Start Up Visa

Have you heard? The Canadian government just announced the launch of its new start up visa in April, which is a special visa for entrepreneurs who have great ideas and want to bring those business ideas to Canada. Unlike other entrepreneur or special skill visas in other countries like the United States, the Start Up Visa is unique because it rewards these applicants with permanent residency.

There are limited spots available under the Start up Visa, and the program is considered to be temporary for the next five years until the government decides to make it permanent depending on its popularity. However, it is expected to be extremely popular.

What is Required for the Canadian Start Up Visa?

To apply for the Canadian Start Up Visa, you will need to obtain funding. In order to obtain funding you will need a comprehensive business plan that will appeal to your investors. The minimum investment required is $75,000 from a designated angel investor or $200,000 from an approved venture capital organization.

Once the funding is secured, you must also be able to speak and understand either English or French at an intermediate level, and you need to have completed at least one year of post-secondary education.

This visa is expected to be extremely popular and is a great opportunity for people from all over the world to move to Canada. If you are interested in applying for a super visa, contact our immigration law firm for assistance. Our professional immigration staff is able to help you with this new program or any other business immigration program in Canada. Don’t wait!

Great preliminary consultation meeting with Manasi. She offered good immigration options keeping my requirements in mind and answered any queries I could think of. Would definitely consider going ahead with her for my immigration needs.

I had an incredibly easy and convenient experience at VisaPlace! Mansi, who assisted me, was extremely friendly and patient. She provided immediate solutions and was exceptionally kind. Immigration issues can be very challenging, but Mansi made me feel understood and supported, sharing in my struggle and making the process much easier for me. I highly recommend this place!

My initial call was much more informative and helpful than I had imagined it could be. It’s a daunting task to undertake moving to another country, and it was very useful to be able to discuss it with someone who is clear thinking, capable, articulate as well as patient. Well worth it!

I recently booked an appointment for immigration consultancy through VisaPlace, and I am thoroughly impressed with their service. Anis Doba, who assisted me over the phone, was exceptionally helpful and pleasant. He made the entire process smooth and efficient, demonstrating a high level of professionalism and customer care.

Anis patiently answered all my questions, provided clear information, and ensured I understood the next steps. His friendly demeanor and thorough knowledge significantly alleviated my concerns and made me feel confident about the consultancy process.

I highly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking immigration consultancy. Their staff, especially Anis Doba, exemplifies excellent customer service and expertise. Thank you, VisaPlace, for a great experience!
