Start-up Visa Program

Visa startup for Business and Entrepreneur Immigration

Canada’s Start-Up Visa Program targets immigrant entrepreneurs who possess the skills and potential to build innovative businesses in Canada while creating jobs for Canadians and competing globally.

The potential business must get support from a designated Canadian organization for the immigrant entrepreneur to immigrate to Canada.

To be eligible for a Canadian start-up visa, you must meet four requirements:

  • Have a business that qualifies

You must own at least 10% of the voting rights tied to all the company’s shares. You and the designated organization must possess at least 50% of the voting rights linked to all the company’s shares.

  • You should have a letter of endorsement from a specific organization

You must show that you have received funding from a venture capital firm, an angel investor organization, or a business incubator. To do so, you must propose your company idea to the organization and persuade them that it is worthwhile to support.

Each organization’s approach to pitching a business idea will be different.

If your pitch is successful, the organization will provide you a letter of support, which you must include with your start-up visa application.

  • Meet the language requirements

You need to take a language test from an approved agency and demonstrate that you can speak, read, listen, and write at the minimum level of the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 5 in either English or French.

  • Proof of funds

You need to demonstrate that you have enough funds to support yourself and your family upon arrival to Canada. The amount will depend on your family size.

Intra-Company Transfer

The intra-company transferee stream of Canada’s International Mobility Program allows high-skilled foreign nationals to work temporarily in Canada as intra-company transferees. If you work for a company with a subsidiary, branch, or affiliate in Canada or if the Canadian company is your parent company, you may be eligible to secure an LMIA-exempt work permit in Canada. The intra-company transferee provision applies to all countries.

LMIA for Canadian Businesses

Foreign Worker for Business and Entrepreneur Immigration

Are you a Canadian employer looking to hire a foreign national? Before your new employee can apply for a Canadian work permit, you must apply and obtain a positive LMIA. A positive Labour Market Impact Assessment is granted to an employer who can prove to the Canadian government that no Canadian citizen or permanent resident is ready, willing, or able to fill the required position in Canada. Only then a Canadian business owner may be given the green light to hire a foreign worker. The foreign worker must then apply for a work permit supported by the positive LMIA work permit before traveling to Canada for work.
