START-UP VISA

Canada's Start-up Visa Program targets immigrant entrepreneurs with the skills and potential to build innovative businesses in Canada that can create jobs for Canadians and compete on a global scale.

Do you have an innovative business idea? If you can get support for your idea from one of the designated organizations, you may be able to immigrate to Canada.


There are many reasons why Canada is the best place to build your business. Canada's advantages include:

  • a strong economy
  • low taxes and low business costs
  • excellence in research and innovation
  • a high quality of life
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) launched the Start-Up Visa Program on April 1, 2013. The Start-Up Visa Program is a five-year pilot program that is designed to attract innovative foreign entrepreneurs with the skills to create new companies that can compete on a global scale.
