Overview of the Canada Investor Immigration Program
The Canadian government established immigrant investor programs in order to entice wealthy businesses and their capital to the country. The following five government selection criteria must be met by investors and their immediate family in order to earn permanent residency in Canada:
You must show that you have relevant business experience, as defined by the rules. In other words, you must have managed or operated an eligible business for at least two of the previous five years prior to your application.
You and your spouse must have amassed a personal net worth of at least CAD 2 million through legitimate means.
The medical and security exams in Canada must be completed and passed by the entire family.
Under one of the two available immigrant investor programs, you must invest CAD 1.2 million for a five-year term at no interest (0%). The investment is insured by the government and will be fully reimbursed at the end of the investment period.
A points-based system will also be used to evaluate you based on your age, language, education, experience, and time spent in Quebec.
It is possible to become a permanent resident of Canada in a number of ways. The following are the most popular economic programs:
- The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program is a program for people who want to invest in Quebec.
- The Express Entry Program is a program that allows you to apply for (federal)
- Programs for Provincial Nominees
The federal and Quebec programs have comparable selection procedures, with the exception that applicants who intend to establish themselves economically in Quebec must first get a certificate of selection of Quebec (CSQ) before applying to the Government of Canada for permanent residence. Applicants and their dependents will be evaluated on the basis of their health and security. A CSQ holder is necessary to live in the province of Quebec.
