New Immigrants Make Excellent Canadian Entrepreneurs
Each year Canada accepts hundreds of thousands of new immigrants, with the majority of them being economic immigrants. Many economic immigrants come to Canada to start a business, and it turns out new immigrants make excellent Canadian entrepreneurs.
Immigrant-owned businesses outperform their Canadian-born counterparts in many crucial aspects. According to a Statistics Canada study, “immigrant-owned firms had a higher level of net job creation per firm, and were more likely to be high-growth firms than those with Canadian-born owners”. Another Statistics Canada study, recent immigrants are “more likely to enter business ownership than Canadian-born individuals”.
The Canadian government knows that new immigrants make great entrepreneurs who can boost the economy. That’s why they started the Start-Up Visa program to assist innovative immigrant entrepreneurs with getting their business up and running. The Start-Up Visa program is an excellent avenue for entrepreneurs immigrating to Canada, but getting accepted, and meeting the Program’s requirements, is difficult.
At Startup Visa Services, we know the challenges to the Start-Up Visa program. That’s why our highly experienced team guides and assists Start-Up Visa program candidates through the entire program – from preparing to apply, to securing funding – to help their businesses prosper as much as possible.
