Designated organizations for the Start-up Visa Program: Get the designation

Get the designation

To become a designated organization, you must be a member of and be recommended by one of our partner industry associations:

The Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship designates organizations based on these recommendations. You’ll be considered designated on the date your organization name is added to the list of designated organizations.

Once you’re designated

Once your organization has been designated, you will be given access to a free dedicated service channel (DSC) and an account manager who can

  • answer your organization’s questions
  • give your organization guidance

The DSC doesn’t process applications and can’t assist you in the application process.
