of immigration to Canada through Start-Up Visa

Receiving an application

The registration process begins with your application on the website through the “Let's discuss the details” form.

Free consultation

Once your application is received, Mircare will contact you to discuss your request and provide information about the program. As part of this consultation, you will be able to ask questions to the expert and learn all the features of document preparation.

Conclusion of an agreement

We work in strict accordance with the laws of Canada and the Russian Federation, for this we enter into a service agreement with you, in which we specify all stages of our work and the payment procedure

Choosing a business incubator and preparing for admission

The Canadian government has approved more than 40 Canadian business incubators. Each business incubator has its own process for accepting business projects and the criteria used to evaluate them. We select a business incubator for you in Canada and prepare you for admission.

Training in a business incubator

Training is necessary to ensure you understand how to do business in Canada. Each institute offers different training programs, the average duration of which is about 2 weeks.

Business plan protection

After successfully completing the training program, you will need to present your business project to the business institute commission. Entrepreneurs who successfully complete the course and prepare a business plan for their project become residents of the business incubator and receive a letter of support, which is an integral part of the Start-Up Visa immigration program.

Collection and submission of documents for immigration

The Mircare curator will provide you with a list of necessary documents for immigration. All documents are submitted remotely.

Moving to Canada

There are two options for your move. The first involves a quick move, where you receive a Work Permit. The spouse gets a job (Open work permit), and the children go to study (Study permit). In this case, you obtain permanent resident status while in Canada. Second, you are waiting to become a resident before moving to Canada.

What will you get?
Letter of support
An official letter of support from a business incubator, which confirms the willingness to cooperate with a foreign business or entrepreneur.
Permanent Residence
Document confirming permanent resident status in Canada

We are often asked about
the Start-Up Visa program

How to obtain permanent residence in Canada?

It is important for an entrepreneur to complete two main steps. First you need to gain the trust and support of an organization approved by the Government of Canada (Designated Organization). If your project is assessed positively, the organization will provide you with a Letter of Support. It is on the basis of this letter that you will be able to draw up and submit a package of documents to obtain Permanent Residence status.

How long does training in a business incubator last?

The duration of the course varies depending on the incubator: some offer a 3-month program with 2-3 classes per week, while others provide intensive training over 2 weeks with daily classes.

What conditions does the startup program offer for moving with your family?

As part of the program, only the founder of the company receives training, and his entire family has the right to move without additional payment. Family is considered to be your spouse and minor children, including children from previous marriages of both you and your spouse. You do not need to be legally married to participate in the program, as Canada recognizes civil unions. This startup program allows your family to come to Canada with you right away, unlike immigration programs in some other countries where the family joins at a later date.

How to move to Canada if permanent residence takes 2-2.5 years?

The process of obtaining permanent residence in Canada differs from many other countries where a residence permit is first issued. The wait for permanent resident status (Permanent Residence) is quite long, but you can get a work visa (Work Permit) as part of your startup during the period of consideration of permanent residence. It is necessary to justify that the project requires a person’s presence in Canada and work in this company. The processing time for a work visa usually takes 3-4 months.

Do I need proof of financial solvency to participate in the program?

To immigrate to Canada, you will need to prove that you have sufficient funds in your bank account. The amount you need to have in your bank account depends on the size of your family and is subject to change. For example, the current requirement for a single person is C$13,310 and for a family of three it is C$20,371. Typically, confirmation is an account statement or a certificate of the balance of funds in the account.

What actions are required of me after moving to Canada?

Under the terms of the Start-up Visa program in Canada, after arrival you must be a member of a business incubator for 1 year. Membership costs vary by business incubator and start at C$250 per month. Additionally, you will need to register your company in Canada and operate your business while in the country.

How to obtain Canadian citizenship?

To qualify for Canadian citizenship, several conditions must be met. First of all, you must have Permanent Residence status. It is also required to have lived in the country for at least 3 years within the last 5 years (not necessarily continuously). In addition, you will have to pass a citizenship test.

  • Got a Portugal visa

    Olga and Artem are happy holders of an annual visa.

    The couple did not care which country they received Schengen, because they are experienced travelers, and they have already had Schengen from different countries.

    We chose Portugal and were not disappointed, as visas were approved immediately for a year without any problems or difficulties.
