Hello. I'm applying for the startup visa program. My current immigration representatives found I was eligible, and referred me to this incubator/accelerator company in BC. I had a phone interview with them, in which I explained my plans for setting up my own company and moving to live in Vancouver, and they accepted my proposal. They then sent me the expected Term Sheet and Escrow Agreement to start the SUV process. In their terms, however, the company is asking for an (unmentioned in the interview) fee of gigantic proportions (I'd rather not disclose the actual value, but think hundreds of thousands CAD). According to the Term Sheet, this fee is not meant to become any sort of launch capital for the new company, it just seems to be destined to the incubator itself. (Or, as my representatives put it, destined to essentially 'buy' my way into permanent residency) Is this normal? I've searched far and wide, and couldn't find anything about any similar situation. Am I being extorted? (I also asked my reps about finding other companies to approach, they replied, in few words, that this would be the same with any other incubator. I don't know what to believe anymore here.) Thanks in advance for any information.
