“I am interested in starting a new business in Canada- what skills or experience do I need to do this? I have no degree but have been successfully running my business for years.” - Mr. R. Mohammed

Canada’s great at welcoming and encouraging entrepreneurs, but a lot has to be checked out before they accept these types of applications. The government of Canada need to be sure that the business proposal you put forward will have a good chance of benefitting the Canadian economy for the long term. One of the areas they will look at is your education, but you’ll be pleased to know that a degree is not a prerequisite for acceptance. You will, however, need to show that you’ve spent at least a year in some secondary education. But what’s more important is that you can show your competence in running a business over a number of years, so on that score it sounds like you’ve got every chance for success! 

“Is starting up a business in Canada expensive? Will I need money or can I expect some kind of assistance from the Canadian government in setting up my new company?”

The simple answer to this is: You’ve got to spend money to make money. Very few businesses start from nothing and, so, the Canadian government will expect new entrepreneurs to pay their own way. This means you’ll need to be able to support yourself financially both personally and professionally until such time that your business is up and running. How much you’ll need depends completely on the size of your family; so, if you have three members, you’ll need roughly seventeen thousand dollars. This amount, however, is constantly reviewed by the Canadian authorities- get in touch with us to find out more information on starting your own business in Canada.

My experience with Brighter Visas has been wonderful so far. From the day of my assessment to the day of my application to the day of searching for employment, everything has been very smooth. My consultant, Mr. Luke, has been very helpful and accommodating with all my inquiries and needs. He's always available whenever I have questions or when I'm in need of his assistance. He calls me from time-to-time to update me of my case and assures me that everything is going well, which is why I never worry of my application because I'm confident that I am in good hands and in a good team. Brighter Visas also sends e-news letters, which give me more options and knowledge of the employment in my desired country.

I have already recommended Brighter Visas to my friends and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Thank You, Brighter Visas!


The whole experience of using Brighter Visas was very professional and dealt with extremely efficiently, from initial enquiries with Chetan to structuring the application and final outcome with Simin.

I would recommend Brighter to anyone looking to immigrate and in need of an agent.

Many thanks for a pleasant service and great outcome.


The immigration consultant was very knowlegeable and provided me with a regular update on my case. I never imagined it was for real until i got an email that my green card has been approved. At this point, i am more than willingly to recommend Brighter Visas to friends and family members since they truly are the best in rendering professisonal immigration services to people world over.


It is difficult to explain how good it felt when my visa was approved.  Years of dreaming about living overseas out of the smoke.  Then applying to make the move before I got too old with my whole family was so stressful and exciting but also I was very anxious.  I just want to say thanks to the whole team for my visa but most of all for giving me months of free therapy when I needed a little reassurance I was doing the right thing.  

I love my new life and my kids are doing so well in School it is just amazing.
