    What fundamental requirements must you meet to apply for Start-Up Program?

    Following are the requirements you need to meet, to become eligible for the Start-Up Program

    • To have a qualifying business: A candidate must hold a minimum of 10% voting rights included in all the company shares. Also, you must own at least 50% of the voting rights associated with all of the Company’s shares and the Designated Organization.
    • Possess an endorsement document from the specified organization: We will assist you in making the case that you have the backing of an angel investment group, venture capital fund, or business incubator. Furthermore, you must propose your business concept and persuade the organization to support it. After that, each group will have a different procedure for presenting their business idea. Subsequently, if your pitch is accepted, the group will provide you with a letter of support, which you must submit with your start-up visa application.
    • Meet the requirement for language: The candidate must be able to pass the language proficiency test conducted by an approved agency. You must fulfil the minimum Canadian Language Benchmark of 5 bands in either English or French.
    • Proof of funds: You have to give evidence of your financial stability. Before coming to Canada, you must have enough money to support yourself and your dependents.


    Make Sure to be Supported by Designated Organizations for Start Up Visas

    You must demonstrate (with a commitment certificate and a letter of support) that your company is backed by a designated organization to meet the eligibility requirements. These records, which will detail your agreement with one or more specified groups, are crucial to your start-up visa application. There will be no requirement for applicants to spend their own money, unlike federal and provincial investor programs where they must.

    Those who are eligible must instead raise a minimum of $200,000 from a Canadian venture capital fund or $75,000 from a Canadian seed investor, as determined by the government of Canada. No investment money is required if the applicant is accepted into a reputable Canadian business incubator.
