To be eligible for the Canadian Start-Up Visa, there are four key requirements you must fulfill:

  1. Qualifying Business Ownership: You need to hold a minimum of 10% of the voting rights attached to all shares of your company, and collectively with a designated organization, possess at least 50% of the voting rights attached to all shares of the company.

  2. Letter of Support from a Designated Organization: We will guide and assist you in securing a letter of support from a designated organization, such as a venture capital fund, angel investor group, or business incubator. This involves pitching your business idea and convincing the organization of its viability and potential for success. Each organization may have a unique pitching process, and upon a successful pitch, you will receive the necessary letter of support to include in your Start-Up Visa application.

  3. Language Proficiency: You must demonstrate language proficiency by taking a language test from an approved agency and meeting the minimum level of the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 5 in either English or French across speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills.

  4. Proof of Funds: We provide guidance on how to demonstrate proof of funds, which is essential to show that you have the financial resources to support yourself and any dependents upon arrival in Canada. The required amount depends on your family size.

Designated Organizations for Start-Up Visa Program

To qualify for the Start-Up Visa Program, it is essential to demonstrate that your business is backed by a designated organization. This involves providing proof in the form of a Commitment Certificate and Letter of Support, detailing your arrangement with one or more designated organizations. These documents are crucial for a successful startup visa application. Unlike other investor programs that require applicants to invest their own capital, this program does not necessitate any personal investment.

Instead, eligible candidates must secure a minimum of $75,000 from a Canadian angel investor or a minimum of $200,000 from a Canadian venture capital fund recognized by the government of Canada. Alternatively, being accepted into a recognized Canadian business incubator waives the need for any investment capital.
