Frequently Asked Questions

If I receive a letter of support from a designated organization, is my permanent residence application guaranteed to be approved?2021-02-09T13:00:59+00:00

Obtaining the letter of support is a critical and required step to applying for the SUV Program, but alone does not guarantee that you will be approved. IRCC will review each application and ensure that you meet the eligibility and admissibility criteria, that you have sufficient funds to support yourself and your family when you arrive in Canada, and that you have passed a medical examination and security clearance checks.

Can I establish my business anywhere in Canada, or will I be restricted to one Province?2021-02-09T12:35:51+00:00

You will be free to establish in any Province, other than the Province of Quebec. There are designated organizations across the country, who can support you regardless of where you choose to settle with your family and establish your business.

How much money do I need to invest in the business?2021-02-09T12:35:37+00:00

There is no minimum amount. The amount you will need to personally invest in your business will vary based on the type of business. We expect that at a minimum, a business will require an initial investment of at least CAD$100,000 to launch and become operational. There are some initial expenses at the launch of a business, and you want to be sure that the company is well-funded from the beginning. But in most cases additional investment will be required from the entrepreneur.

Do I need previous management experience to participate in this Program?2021-02-09T12:35:25+00:00

There is no requirement that the applicant have prior management experience. In assessing your application, the designated organization will assess the viability of the business under your management. Plenty of entrepreneurs never had previous management experience before launching their first start-up business and went on to create highly successful businesses.

Who will review my Start-up Visa Program application?2021-02-09T12:35:11+00:00

First, the Business Incubator that you are seeking support from will review the viability of your business proposal. Next, the Department of Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada will review your immigration application to make sure you have received the necessary support to apply and to make sure you’re eligible and admissible to become a permanent resident.

In some cases, your application may also be subject to an independent peer review process. The peer review process ensures that your activities and those of the Business Incubator are in line with industry standards.

Can an entrepreneurial team immigrate to Canada together through the Start-up Visa Program?2021-02-09T13:01:54+00:00

Yes –up to 5 people can apply through the SUV Program as owners of a single business. When reviewing your proposal, the business incubator will decide who is and who isn’t essential to the business. If IRCC refuses the application of any of the entrepreneurs, for any reason, all related applicants will be refused.

What is the difference between support from venture capital funds, angel investor groups, and business incubators?2021-02-09T13:02:14+00:00

To get support from a VC Fund or angel group, you need to secure a minimum investment of CAD200,000 or CAD75,000 respectively from them. A business incubator on the other hand won’t invest any funds but will agree to support your project and accept you into their business incubation program.

If I immigrate through the SUV Program, what happens if my business fails?2021-02-09T13:02:53+00:00

If your business fails, it does not affect your permanent resident status. IRCC recognizes that not every business will succeed, and the SUV Program is designed so that the risk is shared between the public and private sector.

Do I need to be actively involved in the management of this business?2021-02-09T12:34:30+00:00

Yes. You must provide active and ongoing management of this business from within Canada.

Do I need to create a genuine business to immigrate to Canada with this Program?2021-02-16T13:21:55+00:00

Yes. The Program is designed for entrepreneurs with the skills and abilities to start a business in Canada.
