Startup Visa Program

Here at NACO we administer the Angel and incubator streams of Immigration, Refugee, and Citizenship Canada's Startup Visa program by designating leading Angel groups, incubators and accelerators from across the country.  Angel groups, incubators and accelerators designated to participate under the program are able to provide immigrant entrepreneurs with access to an expedited immigration process. The process is intended to allow for the expedited migration of foreign-owned businesses looking to operate in Canada by providing up to five (5) founders or core team members with permanent residency, provided that they meet the criteria established under the program and IRCC's general requirements for immigration.
