The Quebec Business/Investor Immigration programs of Canadian immigration are available to individuals who have acquired entrepreneurial, investor, or self-employed experience and wish to settle in the province of Quebec.

All applicants under the Quebec Business/Investor programs must show that they are capable of becoming economically established in Canada with the intention of settling in the province of Quebec following acceptance. Upon provincial approval, candidates will receive a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de sélection du Québec, or CSQ). The CSQ is the official document issued by the government of Quebec that allows an individual to acquire a Canadian Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa once health and security aspects of the process have been completed.

There are three programs within Quebec Business/Investor Immigration, each with its own requirements and selection process:

  • Quebec Investor Program

    To qualify as an investor, an individual must have a net worth of at least CAD$1.6 million, have managerial experience and be willing to make a government-secured investment of CAD$800,000 for a period of five years. Financing of this investment is available through Canadian financial institutions.

    CanadaVisa.com and the Campbell Cohen Law Firm has partnered with Quebec Investment Consultation and Management Services (QICMS) to provide first-class, personalized, trustworthy and confidential services to investors with business and/or senior management experience. To learn more about this unique investment opportunity, click here.
