Are you an international entrepreneur looking to bring your tech company to Canada? We can help with that. Our Startup Visa Program offers assistance to select entrepreneurs to help bring their businesses to Canada.
The Canadian Startup Visa Program is the first of its kind worldwide. The program provides permanent residence to startup entrepreneurs who have the potential to build innovative companies in Canada that can create new jobs, spur economic growth and compete on a global scale.
The Accelerator Centre has been selected as an approved business incubator and is able to endorse international entrepreneurs for visa consideration.
In addition to the Federal requirements, the Accelerator Centre requires Startup Visa applicants to meet the following criteria.
$100,000 in revenue in the past two years and strong growth potential
Established IP or strong proprietary technology or business model
A committed founding team
A clear understanding and desire to grow a business in Canada
$3,000 per month with a minimum 12 month commitment to the Startup Visa Program.
We open applications for the SUV program on a quarterly basis. Our next round of applications will open in the spring of 2021. If you'd like to be notified when applications open, please sign-up for updates below.
