We are a designated organization of the Canadian Government’s Start-up Visa Program and are a  designated referral partner for the Global Talent Stream program. We’ve worked with over 50 different international companies and helping them root themselves in Vancouver, Canada. Through our Maple Program, we help tech companies identify the best path for immigration for their team and their families: Startup Visa, Express Entry, Provincial Nomination, or Global Talent Stream.  

We only work with companies that already have a product in the market, are financially stable, have already raised funding either internally or externally, and/or already have revenues, and are focused on the expansion of an existing business into North America through Canada. We primarily work with companies in the following emerging tech sectors: ML/AI, VR/AR, Blockchain, Financial Services, Data Science, Quantum Computing, Health Tech, CyberSecurity, and SaaS.
