Canada’s Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, Jason T. Kenney, announced late January 2013, a new Start-Up Visa to be launched in Canada on April 1, 2013. The new visa looks to attract immigrant entrepreneurs supported by Canadian investors. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has partnered with Canada’s Venture Capital & Private Equity Association (CVCA) and the National Angel Capital Organization (NACO) to identify eligible members that have start-up experience and could provide attractive resources to candidates looking to apply for this visa.
