Canada (Start-Up Visa)

In a World Report 2020 survey, Canada has recently been recognized as the number one country in the world for quality of life. It has one of the best healthcare systems in the world, a clean environment and a secure banking system. The country ranks amongst the highest in terms of civil liberties, economic freedom and education.


Launched in 2013, the Canada Start-up Visa (SUV) is a program that allows entrepreneur applicants to apply for permanent residence to Canada. The main objective of this program is to target entrepreneurs and innovative people to start or to invest in a company that will be successful locally and internationally. Advance Global Partners will find and pair up the applicant with a designated organization (letter of support).
