Canada Start-up Entrepreneur Businessmen

Canada Start-Up program !

Canada’s new Start-Up Visa is the first of its kind in the world, linking immigrant entrepreneurs with experienced private sector organizations that have expertise in working with start-ups. 

Canada wants entrepreneurs. Unlike programs in other countries, we do not provide “temporary” or “conditional” status. Successful applicants to this program will be able to immediately apply for permanent residence if they secure a commitment from a designated Canadian private sector organization. 

Do you want to build a dynamic company that can compete on a global scale? It starts in Canada.
