Investor Immigration Programs
How we help you apply under the Investor Immigration Programs
The Federal Immigrant Investor Program or IIP was discontinued in mid-2014. However, a few provincial programs serving the same purpose still exist. These are the Manitoba Business Investor Stream (previously known as Manitoba Provincial Nominee Business Program) and the Quebec Investor Immigration Program.
These programs are aimed at bringing high net worth individuals as well as their families into the country. Other Canada investment immigration programs that serve the same purpose are the Prince Edward Island Program and the Quebec Entrepreneur Program.
At the Law Office of Matthew Jeffery, we have years of experience in investor immigration Canada, including federal investment programs like the Manitoba Business Investor Stream and the Quebec Investor Immigration Program.
How We Assist you to apply under the Quebec Investor Immigration Program
We will help you understand the qualification requirements. These include demonstration that you have a net worth of over $1,600,000, that you can invest at least $800,000 in a business loan to the Quebec government, and that you have at least 2 years recent managerial experience in a lawful business (commercial, industrial, or agricultural), an international agency, or a government. Note you stand a higher chance of qualifying if you speak French, but there is no French language requirement. There is also no age requirement.
Applying for a Quebec Investor Immigration Program is a 2-stage process. We will assist you through both processes. The first of these is at the Quebec Immigration Office (SIQ). This first stage is usually completed within 12 months.
If the first step is successful, your file will be sent to the Canadian visa office that serves your country. Processing at this stage will take 12 months or more. If this stage is successful, you and your family will get your permanent resident visas, which you can use to enter and stay anywhere in the country.
