The Alacrity business model has been proven over a number of years and in a number of global locations. Each regional office, however, operates with a requisite degree of local autonomy and flexibility, including in the way their individual programs are structured. Alacrity Canada is proud to offer the Start-up Visa and Entrepreneurship@Alacrity programs.

Start-up Visa:

Alacrity Canada is proud to be one of the designated Canadian business incubators/accelerators under the federal Start-up Visa program.

The Start-up Visa program is intended to attract foreign entrepreneurs who wish to establish new, high-growth businesses in Canada that will support innovation and job creation.

Alacrity Canada can recommend and sponsor qualifying entrepreneurs to receive a start-up visa from Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Alacrity Canada has a strict application process and will only be accepting high-growth potential technology companies into one of our incubator/accelerator programs.

If accepted into Alacrity’s incubator/accelerator program, entrepreneurs will receive a letter of support from Alacrity Canada. Entrepreneurs then apply for a Start-up Visa directly to Citizenship and Immigration Canada through their application process where applicants must meet the program’s eligibility requirements.

Please contact to apply.


The Entrepreneurship@Alacrity program places promising recent business and engineering graduates in an intense 9-12 month training bootcamp which is geared towards helping them become successful entrepreneurs in the technology sector. Participants are able to access significant resources, including office space, shared accounting and administrative services, and more during this time, preparing them for establishing a tech company.

Entrepreneurship@Alacrity alumni include Referral SaaSquatch, Tutela Technologies, Pretio Interactive, Encepta, HYAS, and Echosec.
