You'll need a designated organization to approve your business and issue you a Letter of Support, then you'll be almost ready to apply for PR, along with your fund, IELTS, etc...

It depends on the designated organization to be honest. All I can say is it has to prove to the organization that your business is extraordinary, innovative and job creation for Canadian. That's the original purpose of IRCC when they created this immigration program.

Hi StrangerSUV,
I applied for the SUV program. I sent my application by mail and the courier service indicates it was received by an employee at IRCC Sydney office in Nova scotia.

Sent on: 14th April
Received mail arrived on: 17th April

I have no file number and neither does my application appear in the system yet.

I don't know if there is a way we can collectively put some pressure on IRRC to speed up their process. First off, this should have been implemented as an online application like the other PR streams.
Update on my application:
last week (12th Oct - 16th Oct 2020), IRCC confirmed that my application was received.
I had sent in on 14th April, and it arrived on 17th April, but they said that application was officially received last week, though they haven't opened it, and it isn't assigned a file number yet.
So some progress, but still a long ways

The same. Btw I got some "insights" from the company that applies for visas massively:
"it’s going to take quite a while before we receive an Acknowledgement of Receipt as the mailrooms have slowed down dramatically since Covid "

So friends, I think we need to wait for a while. I applied 4 month ago and expect reply next summer :)
