New Heights: Start-up Visa Immigration to Canada Surpasses Expectations

Start-up Visa (SUV) immigration to Canada experienced a slight dip in February, with a 14.3% decrease in new permanent residents compared to January. This trend aligns with the overall decline in Canadian immigration during this period. However, despite this recent decrease, the numbers still far exceed those of the previous year. For example, in January alone, Canada welcomed 490 immigrant entrepreneurs through the SUV program, a significant increase from just 50 arrivals the year before, showcasing the Canada startup visa benefits. If this current trajectory persists, Canada could potentially see up to 5,550 immigrant entrepreneurs entering the country by the end of the year.
