Immigration to Canada under the Investor category *

In order for you to qualify to immigrate to Canada as an Immigrant Investor you must:

  • Demonstrate business experience for at least two years.  Your role must have included management or ownership or part-ownership of the business.
  • Have a legally-obtained net worth of at least CDN $1,600,000. 
  • Invest CDN $800,000 for 5 years with the government of Canada at 0% interest.  The investment is fully guaranteed by Canadian provincial and territorial governments and at the end of the 5 year term, your CDN $800,000 will be repaid to you.

We can arrange financing for you with major Canadian banks in which case you will only deposit roughly CDN $180,000 and finance the balance of CDN $800,000 investment requirement.  Once the loan is advanced, no monthly payments are required to service the loan and you will not receive any interest or capital return at maturity.  The total cost of this financing package is therefore limited to your initial CDN $180,000 deposit.

  • Earn sufficient points in the selection factors to meet the pass mark. 

The participating banks in the Immigrant Investor Program are large, well-known Canadian banks with many offices and branches overseas.  They are among the world’s largest banking and financial service organizations.
