Canada Announces Cap on Start-Up Visa Applications and a Full- Pause on Self-employed Persons to Reduce Backlogs and Improve Processing Times

 

Canada Immigration Minister Marc Miller has announced, on April 29, a cap on the number of permanent residence applications through the Start-Up Visa and a full pause on self-employed, which took effect on Tuesday April 30, 2024. These changes are motivated to decrease the backlog and improve the processing time.

“Fast processing is critical to the success of entrepreneurs who come to Canada through our federal business programs,” he said. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada will limit the applications it receives each year to those associated with no more than 10 start-ups per designated organization.

IRCC will also provide priority processing whose start-up is supported by a Canadian capital or business incubator that is a member of Canada’s Tech Network.

“These necessary changes will set the Start-up Visa Program and Self-Employed Persons Program on the path to faster processing times while we look ahead to further reforms to make these programs more sustainable and effective over the long term.” Leduc works closely with many designated organizations and is eager to continue to support entrepreneurs in their Start-Up Visa endeavours in Canada.
