These Programs are for High Net Worth Individuals - HNWI

Created to encourage business investments in a country, the business immigration programs are exclusive programs that enable high net worth individuals to attain permanent residency.

In Canada, the business investor programs are for those who have significant management experience and can contribute to the economic growth of the country. The federal government runs its own investor program that allows investors to settle in any province except Quebec, however, each province, including Quebec, has its own investor program as well. Generally, any of the investor programs in Canada would require a sizeable investment that would be eventually returned, a minimum net worth, as well as a background in managing a business.

For those who want to create or acquire a business in Canada, there are entrepreneur programs that have similar requirements to the investor programs and are also available through the federal government or specific provinces. For those with a more specific profession and can create jobs for themselves, they may be eligible for Canada’s self-employed program which does not require any initial investment.

The US also has its own investor program called the EB-5 Program. Under this program, aside from providing the required investment amount, the investor must also prove that 10 jobs were created through his/her investment. However, unlike in Canada, there is no need for the investor to have management experience. For those wishing to immigrate to Europe, one of the most popular programs is the Portugal Golden Visa program. Compared to the investment programs mentioned in the two countries above, this program has more lenient requirements, not necessitating any management experience, minimum net worth, or proof of the source of funds.
