Applicants are required to manage the day to day operations of the business.

  • Get a letter of support from a designated organization

You must get a letter of support from a designated organization (a business group that has been approved to invest in or support possible start-ups).

You’ll need to:

  • contact the designated organization to find out how to get its support
  • convince the organization that you have a business idea that is worth supporting
  • get a letter of support from the designated organization

If you reach an agreement with a designated organization, it will send you a letter of support. You need to include this letter when you submit your application to us. This is the proof you need to show that the venture capital fund, angel investor group, or business incubator is supporting your business idea.

The organization will also send a commitment certificate directly to IRCC. It will use both your letter of support and the organization’s commitment certificate to assess your application.

While your application for permanent residence is being processed, you can apply for a temporary work permit to get to Canada and start building your business.
