Mobility Options, a global immigration consultancy firm, has urged Nigerian entrepreneurs to take advantage of the Canadian Start-Up Visa programme to improve their businesses.
The Canadian government’s Start-Up Visa Programme offers a unique opportunity for talented entrepreneurs from around the world to establish their innovative businesses in Canada. With the current political climate in Nigeria causing increased uncertainty for businesses, the programme presents a lifeline for Nigerian entrepreneurs seeking to build their companies on a stable and welcoming foundation.
Speaking, president, Mobility Options, Mrs Ebi Obaro, said: “mobility is the largest driving factor for high-net-worth individuals who desire speedy travel processes so they can easily move around for business, holidays, and trade events without filling out laborious visa applications and scheduling appointments at visa offices.”
Also, vice president, Diaspora of Mobility Options, Tukeni Obasi added that, “the Canada Start-Up Visa Programme allows overseas entrepreneurs to build an innovative firm in Canada and apply for permanent residence.”
According to Obasi, with its leading trade market, the programme aims to provide permanent residence to entrepreneurs, active company investors, and expanding businesses that seek to establish a presence in Canada.
“Foreign entrepreneurs must submit an innovative, scaling start-up business that has been accepted by one of the following specified organisations: business incubators, angel investors, or venture capitalists, to be granted permanent residence in Canada.
“Once approved, the client receives a letter of support, allowing them and their family to apply for permanent residency,” he said. The company explained that “for Nigerian entrepreneurs, the Canadian Start-Up Visa Program offers a unique opportunity to build their businesses in a stable and supportive environment.
The application process for the Start-Up Visa programme is open and straightforward, with a range of support available to help applicants navigate the process. The program is highly competitive, but the rewards for successful applicants are significant, with the opportunity to establish their businesses in Canada”
