How the Canadian Government Helps Start-ups

The Canadian government helps up-and-coming start-ups with a variety of programs on both the national and local levels. Over the past decade, it has developed tax incentives, loans, grants, wage subsidies, and even offered visas to qualifying immigrants who want to plant their start-up on Canadian soil.

  • Innovative landscapes and businesses have developed considerably over the past years in Canada. Business immigration has become a key component of Canada’s immigration system, attracting investment in start-ups. To develop new projects in Canada, an immigration program, Start-Up Visa, was launched.

  • Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada works with Canadians in all areas of the economy and all parts of the country to improve conditions for investment; enhance Canada’s innovation performance; increase Canada’s share of global trade; and build a fair, efficient, and competitive marketplace. There are currently over 30 programs and initiatives

  • There are also many different government business grants available for start-up companies. With options including refundable tax credits to cover your research and development costs and grants that allow you to hire fresh talent, the Canadian government has multiple federal programs and provincial grants designed to spur innovation.
