Can an entrepreneurial team immigrate to Canada together through the Start-up Visa Program?

Yes. Up to 5 people can apply through the Start-up Visa Program as owners of a single business.

When reviewing your proposal, the designated organization will decide who is essential or non-essential to the business. An essential person is critical to the proposed start-up. Without this person, the designated organization would not invest or support the proposal.

If we refuse the application of an essential person, all related applicants will be refused.
