Canada recognizes that ambitious businesspersons play a critical role in economic success. For many adventurous entrepreneurs, Canada is an excellent place to start their new business ventures. The Federal Start-Up Visa program has recently been launched to attract and facilitate the permanent residence of such applicants. This program is unique in nature and seeks to attract the brightest and most creative of entrepreneurs wanting to bring their ideas and investments to work in Canada.
This program seeks to foster a significant investment in Canada which will lead to job creation and economic development. This visa favors applicants who have a defined plan for a new business venture in Canada and are willing to obtain the necessary support and funding for their intended venture. These visas allow applicants the opportunity to immigrate and settle themselves and their families in Canada.
