As a goodwill gesture the govt can allow the CSQ holders under QIIP to settle it Quebec - buy property - start business - avail the benefit of free education etc etc till the time their PR is issued
If Pr is refused or otherwise the govt can claim back the perks granted / availed by the family
These are fair terms - as the govt also has / is using the invested funds of the QIIP applicant
Hope someone takes this forward

I have seen these two pieces of news. It looks like there are some serious movements to expedite the speed of federal process for QIIP applicants.

Anyone with any comments?

"We believe that it is essential to increase, as of 2020, the selection thresholds of the PIIQ that have been reduced by 50% in 2019 in order to increase the capital available to Quebec SMEs. By tabling its Bill 9 1 last spring, the government has clearly stated its intention to align the needs of Quebec businesses with the skills profile of immigrant candidates. We ask that this will be reflected in the processing of requests from the PIIQ, which is a powerful growth tool for Quebec SMEs, "said Louis Leblanc , senior vice-president of National Bank Financial.

Without counting the 2,500 families awaiting selection by Quebec, more than 5,000 families in the immigrant investor category are currently waiting for a permanent residence visa in order to settle in Quebec.

"These families awaiting admission have already contributed to Québec's prosperity through their regulatory investment. Current deadlines jeopardize the reputation of the program, "said Marc Audet , President and Chief Executive Officer of AURAY Capital, a member of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton .

Among other things, they recommended granting immigrant investors a Certificate of Acceptance from Quebec so that they could settle more quickly in the province, which would encourage their retention.
Point 2 makes a lot of sense . It will bring lot of relief to the applicants waiting for PR after CSQ

Hi Naeem,
There is no standard time frame, from the forum, some completed within 3 years post CSQ. The expected waiting time posted by IRCC is 53 months. Good luck !
