Set your plans in motion


Start up your life in Canada with the Start-Up Visa




The Canada Start-Up Visa ("SUV") Program allows successful entrepreneurs to obtain immediate full and unconditional Canadian permanent residency in 12-16 months, and is a pathway to Canadian citizenship which can be obtained after 3 years of permanent residence.


The SUV program targets entrepreneurs with the skills and potential to build businesses in Canada that are innovative, can spur economic growth, and can compete on a global scale. Eligible applicants should also demonstrate an ability to communicate in English or French (minimum Canadian Language Benchmark 5/IELTS General Training 5.0).


Strong economic growth: Forbes rates Canada as one of the top countries in the G-20 to do business.

Low taxes and low business costs: Canada's overall tax rate on new business investment is significantly lower than that of other G-7 countries. KPMG ranks Canada as the most tax competitive country in the G-7.


Excellence in research and innovation: Canada has world-leading research and development (R&D) infrastructure, scientific talent, and innovation incentives. Combined federal and provincial credits can return to investors, on average, up to 30% of R&D investment in Canada.

Top quality of life: Canada is consistently ranked among the top countries for having one of the highest standards of living in the world. Canada is home to a highly educated, flexible, and multicultural workforce.
