Canadian Start-Up Visa (SUV)

The Canadian Start-Up Visa (SUV) is an immigration program introduced by the Canadian federal government in 2013. The basic process involves applicants having a business idea and obtaining a letter of support from a designated organization approved by the government. With the support letter, applicants can directly apply for the Canadian Permanent Residency (Maple Leaf Card). This program offers a direct pathway to permanent residency, and applicants do not need to physically be present in Canada during the entire approval process. The overall timeline to obtain the Maple Leaf Card is typically 2-3 years.
