In gaining Canadian permanent residency (PR) South Africans enjoy the level of success in gaining permanent residency in Canada under the Start-Up Visa program. An incredible 90 percent of South African applicants in Canada’s Start-Up Visa program were accepted, while the average acceptance rate is 38 percent, according to Statistics Canada.
