In January this year, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) announced a new category of visa for entrepreneurs, due to open on 1 April 2013. The new visa enables entrepreneurs to obtain capital investment from Canadian investors before obtaining the visa. CIC has arranged to collaborate with venture capital associations namely Canada’s Venture Capital & Private Equity Association (CVCA) and the National Angel Capital Organisation (NACO) to assist migrating business people with funding and resources.
This category is now open. See Start-up visa for further information.
