Get Started

Federal Investor Program

*This program has been terminated. There are currently no plans to resume this program. The Federal Investment Immigrant Program permits eligible immigrant investors to acquire Permanent Resident Status in Canada by making a guaranteed, five-year investment of $800,000 CAD of their own funds via an authorized agent.

Federal Venture Capital Program

If you are savvy business owner or manager with a personal net worth that exceeds $10 million, you may be qualified to apply under the Federal Venture Capital Pilot Program. Eligible applicants will be required to make a non-guaranteed investment of $2 million for up to 15 years in order to secure an investor visa (Permanent Residency).

Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP)

The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program is a unique initiative designed by the province of Quebec, Canada, aimed at attracting wealthy foreign nationals who are willing to make a significant financial investment in the province. Participants in this program are required to invest a substantial sum of money in a government-guaranteed investment for a fixed period, usually five years. In return, they and their immediate family members are granted the opportunity to obtain Canadian permanent residency. This program targets experienced business people and is structured to contribute to Quebec’s economic growth while offering investors and their families the benefits of living in a diverse and economically stable province. The selection process involves assessing candidates based on criteria like business experience, net worth, and the ability to contribute to the province’s economy.

Provincial Nominee Programs for Investors

Certain provinces offer the opportunity to immigrate to Canada with an investor visa by applying under their own investor stream of the Provincial Nominee Program. Each province will establish their own set of rules and eligibility requirements based on its own economy, opportunities and market gaps. If you are interested in living and investing in one particular province, you could be nominated through their provincial immigration program to begin your journey to a Canadian investment immigration visa.
