Can an entrepreneurial team immigrate to Canada together?
CIC recognizes that business ventures are often developed by an entrepreneurial team. Therefore, a Commitment Certificate and Letter of Support may identify up to five persons.
The designated organization assessing your proposal will confirm the status of all applicants as either essential or non-essential to the proposed business enterprise. An essential individual is someone without whom the designated organization would not invest in the business. It is important to note that, if CIC refuses the application of a person identified as essential, all related applicants will be refused.
