Quebec Investor applying in 2018

Discussion in 'Business Immigration' started by Thanate, Jan 22, 2019.

  1. Thank you for your kind words.
    The letter was in French and the only reason given was, as I said "administrative reasons"

    The letter mentioned that if we have paid for interpreter service (which we did as we were recommended by our agent to do so) they will return the cheque. It wasn't clear why if the new interview invitation is forthcoming, they should have just held that money for a moment...

    They agent said it is probably 50/50 chance of interview waiver / postponement.

    Personally I had hoped for interview waiver given that the news article I shared earlier said that in 2018, 74% of applicants got the waiver...
  2. Wishing you get a waiver too. Good luck !
  3. Some news about QIIP from the media (in French)
    From what I gathered, the new government led by CAQ seems to want to change the program. Would this affect those already applied in one way or another? (See Link 1 & Link 2)

    Link 1

    The CAQ was very critical of the inability of the government of Philippe Couillard to stem the exodus of these immigrants.
    "It is necessary to find ways to remedy this problem and to retain it. "
    He also deplored the fact that banks and other financial institutions, called "financial intermediaries" in the jargon of the program, put their pockets.
    The CAQ then intended:
    • (1 to require investors who wish to finance part of the 1.2 million investment to borrow from Québec rather than from a financial intermediary;
    • 2 to repay the first half of the investment in five years, provided that they have assets in Québec equivalent to more than 10% of their assets;
    • 3 to progressively repay the second half in the next five years according to the financial commitments of the immigrant to Quebec.
    Link 2
    Mr. Jolin-Barrette is well aware of this situation, since as of 2015, the CAQ MP proposed an in-depth reform of the program.
    Now Minister, he refused to grant us an interview on this subject.
    On Friday, however, he argued that he would look at the program "in a few months", while refusing to say whether he will make the changes he proposed when he was in opposition.

    (nothing specific, generally about the negative impact of the program to Canadian real estate market)

  5. Only God knows what they are upto and what will become of us !!
    We are all in the same frustrating scenario where nothing is certain
    Hope and pray for all of us !!
  6. The letter of postponement was dated 29th March 2019, which I just realized to be the last working day of Quebec fiscal year. I am not sure if I should read much into this as there is still no update since...
  7. Dear Thanate :- please not read too much in the net as many news make you disappointed and some are not true or fake news ,,, keep your eyes only for CIC website any update you will find there .
    For business investor immigration still valid but only extended the time ,,, I wish to you get CSQ early .
