Program process

Startup Visa Federal

  • A. Signature of the agreement Our legal team will look into your case to present it according to the highest standards of government authorities.
  • B. Counselling and guidance on your business plan. At this stage, our objective is to look at your business plan together and to adapt it to the Canadian market as to the requirements of the different stakeholders of the startup visa program. (It’s important to notice that the business plan creation/ rework could be considered as consultancy service, a certain part of this amount can be supported by your company as charges.)
  • C. Selection of your Canadian business incubator and submission of your application. We work with incubators across Canada. According to your criteria, we will determine with you the incubator best suited to meet your needs and then submit the application in accordance with requirements of each of them.
  • D. Issuance of the letter of support and submission of work permit and permanent residence application The chosen incubator will assess your business project and may issue a letter of support. Upon receipt, our legal team will complete your work permit and permanent residence application and will act as your legal representative in order to supervise each step of the immigration process.
  • E. Issuance of your work permit This temporary status allows you to come to Canada and start the implementation of your business project with your business incubator.
  • F. Issuance of your permanent residency. This permanent status is renewable every five years and allows you to apply for Canadian citizenship after 3 years residing in Canada.
