Start-Up Visa Program

Start-Up Visa Program (SUV Program) is an unique pathway for foreign entrepreneurs who have creative and innovative business concepts to compete in the global marketplace. This program provides these entrepreneurs with the perfect platform to launch their businesses with the support they need in Canada. This helps stimulate economic growth and create jobs for Canadian citizens and existing permanent residents. The Government of Canada encourages such Start-Ups and provides them with the necessary resources to help them succeed.

Prospective Start-Up Visa applicants who are successful under this program can receive permanent resident status and continue operating their Start-Up as intended.
