    Incubators asking for large amount of money to get letter of support.

    Please don't use a consultant - I haven't used one. You will be better off investing that money in your business. I contacted one and they asked me 15,000 CAD.

    Incubators asking for large amount of money to get letter of support.

    Sorry I didn't understand the reason for refusal! That's absurd in my opinion. No, I haven't got approval for my visa yet.

    Or perhaps multiple applicants? I am hearing so many stories on IRCC's twitter account that are tagging #prioritizefamilysponsorship Don't want to be in a situation where the family doesn't get the visa's to travel with me.

    Startup visa program question - August 2020

    I am not clear about the role VAC's play - I submitted my application online and then did my biometrics at a USCIS ASC. Once I get a clearance from IRCC do I then contact a VAC for visa stamping?

    Incubators asking for large amount of money to get letter of support.

    Incubator fees vary - Mine is asking for 2100 CAD per month. I get office space in return (which due to the Covd 19 situation I haven't been able to use). I also get CEO mentoring from a very experienced person and have learned a ton of stuff in the past 6 months. (Started in April 2020). So...
