Startup Visa as a Pathway to Immigration

Startup Visa as a Pathway to Immigration

Citizenship and Immigration Canada recently launched the Startup Visa as a pathway for immigrant entrepreneurs to startup their innovative businesses in Canada. The visa is intended to grant permanent residency to entrepreneurs provided that a designated organization (venture capital fund or angel investor group or business incubator) invests or accepts the business, providing guidance, support and funding. If an organization chooses to support a business idea, they will provide the applicant with a Letter of Support.

What’s the catch?

None! It a win-win situation. Launching a business in Canada allows for our economy to keep growing, providing jobs along with products and services to meet the market’s growing needs. Canada has always welcomed people from all over the world coming from different nationalities, cultures, religions, and working classes; diversity is Canada’s strength. Some advantages of owning a business in Canada include:

  • A strong economy
  • Low taxes
  • Low business costs
  • Excellence in research and innovation
  • A high quality of life


We can help: Global Startup School at Tamwood Careers

The Global Startup School at Tamwood Careers will be launching in January 2018. No other school in Canada is offering this type of innovative business education.  Students can now learn to start their own business or how to work in a startup, and since Canada is inviting entrepreneurs to immigrate to Canada under the new Startup Visa program, students can use this program to help them qualify for permanent residency in Canada.  Read more about it from this link.

We have programs in Marketing, Management, and Innovation & Entrepreneurship. Taking one of our programs allows you to develop a business idea and launch a business. Many top startup experts and business owners have joined the Global Startup School as advisers, mentors and guest speakers to enhance ideas and skills. This is education for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs. Our partnerships with designated organizations such as Launch Academy and Spring, both of which are business incubators, also makes it easier to apply to the Startup Visa!

It’s simple: (1) Take a program with the Global Startup School at Tamwood Careers  (2) Develop a business idea along with the mentorship and support of our teachers and partners  (3) Apply for the Startup Visa if your business idea is accepted by a designated organization (one of our partners).
