Canada Startup Visa Program

Under Canada’s Startup permit program, candidates can come to Canada on a work permit which is sponsored by their Canada-based investor and then apply for a permanent residence once their business is established in the country.

  • Venture capital fund
  • Business incubator
  • Angel investor

 Eligibility requirements for applicants for the permit are:

Have proof that the business has the required support from a designated entity in the form of a Commitment Certificate and Letter of Support
