应加拿大移民企业家创建一个启动签证?

提交 一月 27, 2011 – 6:28 关于一个评论

A组 Van­cou­ver entre­pre­neurs is lea­ding a cam­pai­gn encou­ra­ging the Cana­dian govern­ment to create a new «star­tup visa » for immi­grant entre­pre­neurs.

Laun­ched by Dan­ny Robin­son (总裁, Bri­tish Colum­bia Inno­va­tion Coun­cil), Mau­ra Rod­gers (Exe­cu­tive Direc­tor. Boo­tup Entre­pre­neu­rial Socie­ty), 和鲍里斯韦茨 (Foun­der, W Media Ven­tures), Star­tup Visa Cana­da is an ini­tia­tive «to encou­rage the brigh­test entre­pre­neu­rial minds from around the world to choose Cana­da as the best place to start a company. »

The group argues that the cur­rent « fede­ral and pro­vin­cial govern­ment­s’ entre­pre­neu­rial pro­grams contain mini­mum per­so­nal fixed asset pro­vi­sions of about $300,000 and a long appro­val pro­cess that make it near­ly impos­sible for immi­grant entre­pre­neurs to start com­pa­nies here. »

在他们的建议:

  • replace the cur­rent mini­mum asset pro­vi­sions with a mini­mum Cana­dian invest­ment of $150,000.
  • enable qua­li­fied Immi­grants to part­ner with local investor(与) to expe­dite their tem­po­ra­ry work permits.
  • require Immi­grants to have at least a one-third equi­ty posi­tion in their com­pa­nies, be active in mana­ge­ment, and create at least three full-time equi­va­lent (全职员工) 工作两年以上的年期内.

A simi­lar star­tup visa ini­tia­tive is under­way in the Uni­ted States, where Sena­tors John Ker­ry (Demo­crat of Mas­sa­chu­setts) 和理查德卢格 (Repu­bli­can of India­na) have intro­du­ced the Star­tup Visa Act.

你怎么看? Is the star­tup visa a good idea for Cana­da? Did you come to Cana­da under Citi­zen­ship and Immi­gra­tion Cana­da’s cur­rent entre­pre­neur pro­grams? 如果是这样, what was your expe­rience? Please leave a com­ment and let us know.

And if you agree with the Star­tup Visa Cana­da Ini­tia­tive, 你可以 sign their peti­tion here.
