The Startup Visa (SUV) program was constructed by the Canadian federal government in 2013 to attract entrepreneurs and business people from around the world to launch innovative businesses in Canada. The program is ideal for both well established entrepreneurs/business owners and novice entrepreneurs alike and since it has become a permanent federal program in 2018 it has become the fastest, most efficient and most direct path to immigrate to North America.
The program is quite simple. All you need is to have identified a problem worth solving, have an innovative solution and the energy and ambition to launch that business in Canada.
Once they have secured support for their venture from a Designated Organization, the SUV program allows immigrant entrepreneurs and their families to apply directly to PR( Decisions typical are made between 12-16 months). It also provides the opportunity to come to Canada very quickly (typically between 3 to 6 weeks) on a work permit to start developing their business and settling in Canada. The SUV program has provided over a thousand immigrant entrepreneurs/business owners with Permanent Residency since 2013, with the number of successful applicants increasing every year.
