Innovate, live, and grow in CANADA "Silicon Valley of the North" Start-up Visa Program

We will build your dreams, together.

Start-up visa


In Canada we believe in innovation and building our economy around it. Innovation starts with people, talented, and hardworking like yourself. That’s why our government has created a special immigration program, the Start-up Visa Program for encouraging entrepreneurs to innovate and live permanently in Canada.


Canada is becoming an innovation POWERHOUSE.

Based on growth, performance, funding, and exit values, Canada is ranked among the best startup ecosystem in the world. In fact, outside of Silicon Valley, Waterloo has the highest startup density of any area in the world. And with a combination of economic freedom, low startup costs, government funding, accessible business tools, and plenty of talent, Canada is one of the best places to launch and/or grow your start-up. After all, we are the Silicon Valley of the North!  

Among the 17 countries that offer start-up visa programs to foreign entrepreneurs, Canada is the ONLY one that grants the right of permanent residency from the get go. We are serious about innovation!

To qualify, your start-up must first obtain a Letter of Support from a Designated Organization, and then up to 5 shareholders of your business can apply for Permanent Residency with their families.  

In Canada we know what’s at stake with innovation, so unlike many other countries, we care about your good intentions and hard work, not the mechanical success of your start-up.
