The new Start-Up visa that was launched on April 1st is making lobbyists and politicians in the United States a little bit jealous, according to this recent article from the Toronto Star.
The Start-Up Visa Program will allow entrepreneurs to come to Canada from all over the world while working with mentors and investors in order to create businesses. These businesses are expected to create jobs and grow the Canadian economy.
This new visa is a great way to attract global talent to Canada, while also encouraging the growth and development of jobs for Canadians. So why is the United States a bit jealous?
The United States has tried to establish a similar visa program for entrepreneurs, but hasn’t successfully passed one. Currently, there is one in congress but it is stalled. According to the Toronto Star, the United States is concerned about losing highly-skilled entrepreneurs to the Canada.
The program is expected to be extremely popular because it is a permanent residency visa, but Canada is not the only country to introduce such a visa. Countries like the United Kingdom, Singapore and Australia have similar visas.
