The Foreign Graduate Start-Up Visa Stream (FGSVS) is a program that nominates graduates from outside Canada for permanent residence once they have launched their start-up or innovative business in Alberta. The program is a collaboration between the Government of Alberta's Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) and Platform Calgary.

Upon completion of Platform Calgary's programming, participants submit their updated business plan and pitch deck to AINP. The documents are used to evaluate business viability and determine next steps as part of the Foreign Graduate Start-Up Visa Program. There is no guarantee that by attending this program you will be nominated for the Foreign Graduate Start-Up Visa Program.
