Immigration routes are designed not only to bring in new immigrants to the country but are actually made to ensure that the country is able to attract the needed type of immigrants. In Canada, the government ensures that the routes are able to target what the country needs for a particular period. If more engineers are needed in a specific province, the immigration route would be targeted towards that. Many routes have been designed to bring in skilled workers though there is also a route that is aimed at bringing in those who wish to start businesses in the country.
Known as the Start-Up Visa program, this route has been designed to attract those individuals who are interested in becoming immigrants in Canada and start new businesses there. It is still fairly new but it is looking to be quite an effective program for the country.
How is the Start-Up Visa doing?
This year, the Start-Up Visa (which is also known as SUV) route has become quite popular among those who are interested in moving to Canada as immigrants. In fact, the government is seeing that this route would be able to bring in many new immigrants which would set a record number for this route.
According to data from the government, from January to May of this year, the SUV has been able to bring in around 250 individuals who have been awarded permanent residency visas. These individuals have already moved to Canada and have already settled in the country. This means that the country is right on track towards meeting its goal of bringing in 600 new permanent residents via this route for this year. This is the biggest target that the program has had so far since it was launched back in 2013. It was only supposed to run for five years as a pilot program but because it has been faring well, the program has been continued.
The growing numbers
The pandemic may have hit the entire globe back in 2020 but it is a good thing that Canada has finally been able to keep things under wrap. It has reopened its borders and has eased the restrictions. This has allowed the country to welcome new immigrants. The data from the government has shown that the numbers from January to May 2022 have definitely shown a huge growth of new immigrants through the SUV. If this trend continues, the SUV would be able to beat the highest number that was recorded back in 2019.
There are two provinces in Canada that have been benefiting a lot from the SUV last. One of these is British Columbia which was able to bring in 200 new permanent residents through the SUV. The other province is Ontario which has welcomed 125 new permanent residents via this program.
