Business Investor Programs
Depending on your net worth, ability and willingness to invest in Canada, managerial skills and business acumen, investing in Canada could be a route to permanent residence.
If you're looking to make an investment in the Canadian economy, the government of Canada, as well as certain Canadian provinces, present some enticing options.
The Quebec Investor category of Canadian immigration allows qualified immigrant investors who intend to reside in Quebec to obtain a Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa by investing CAD$800,000 risk-free through an approved financial intermediary or by financing that investment. Note: eligible applicants with advanced intermediate French ability are exempt from the quota and may submit an application until March 31, 2017.
