If you are a business investor or a person holding managerial position, you may be eligible to apply for permanent residency to Canada under different investor programs. Canada is seeking for investors with the skills and capability needed to contribute to the economic growth of the country.
Federal Investor Program:
Quebec Investor Program:
Owing to the fact that it has more control over its immigration, Quebec has its own Investor Program.
Quebec’s investor program is comprehensive and provides access to Canadian Permanent Residency. The program requires an $800 000 CAD investment over 5 years. We also provide the financing of the loan for the investment with a Canadian financial institution for $230 000 CAD as is permitted by the program.
For more information, please go to the Quebec Investor Program page.
