Quebec Business Immigration – Investor
The Quebec Investor category of Canadian immigration was designed to allow qualified immigrant investors the opportunity to obtain a Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa by investing CAD$800,000 risk-free through an approved financial intermediary. These same financial intermediaries allow for financing of the investment.
*NOTE: The maximum cap has been reached. No new Quebec Immigrant Investor applications will be accepted until March 31, 2013.
All Quebec Investors will be expected to meet the following requirements prior to their acceptance:
When making your investment under this program, you can choose one of two options:
- Investment of CAD$800,000 of your own funds: In order to meet the investment requirement, you may choose to make a government-guaranteed investment of CAD$800,000 of your own funds with the Government of Quebec. These funds are then kept with the government for a period of five years, after which they are returned to you in full with 0% interest; OR
- *Payment of a financing fee: Instead of depositing CAD$800,000, you may choose to pay a one-time financing fee to a government-approved financial institution. This fee will not be returned to you. The financial institution will then invest CAD$800,000 with the government on your behalf.
