Start-Up Visa Program to include business incubator stream

On March 30, 2013, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (“CIC”) published Ministerial Instructions that established the Start-Up Visa Program (“SUVP”). When initially established, the SUVP included a Venture Capital stream and an Angel Investor stream. However, on October 26, 2013, CIC published new Ministerial Instructions, which expanded the SUVP to include business incubators. It also began accepting applications under this new stream on October 26, 2013.
