Canada's start-up visa program is a permanent resident stream that allows people who own their own business to move to Canada to create jobs and help build the economy.
To be eligible,
- it must be a new business
- you must have the intention of moving to Canada
- you must find a sponsor such as an incubator
Many of the companies who apply for a Start-Up Visa are technology based. The company criteria include:
- no more than 5 eligible partners in the business
- each applicant must own 10% or more of the start-up shares
- the applicant and the sponsor must own at minimum 50% of the business
- the owners must be actively involved in the business
- you must be an essential part of the business that will be operating in Canada
- the business must be incorporated in Canada
Your immigration application must meet all other eligibility criteria in order to be approved for a start-up visa and all other self-employed and entrepreneur business immigration programs. Consult a Canada business immigration lawyer to determine your best options to move to Canada.
