Canada, the great western democracy that dominates more than half the North American continent, is consistently ranked by the United Nations as one of the best places in the world to live. Among the many reasons for this are its high standard of living, its tolerant society, a vibrant economy and vast beauty.

A businessperson based in Canada has free market access to the U.S. through NAFTA, while remaining within easy reach of India, Asia, South America and the EU. This means that Canadian citizenship, in the opportunities it provides and the respect it generates, is in fact, a world citizenship.

Canada is a country built and peopled by immigrants from all over the globe. Entrepreneurs, in particular, have always been among the pillars of the country’s success.

In recognition of this, the Governments of Canada and Quebec have developed programs to help entrepreneurs from other parts of the world settle in Canada and become Canadian citizens. Under the guidance of National Bank Financial, the largest and most respected operator of such programs, the mechanisms are simple.

At the core of Canada’s government programs is an investment in a 5-year interest-free government guaranteed note. Once the government processes your application and confirms receipt of your investment, a visa is issued allowing you and your family to come and live in Canada.

At the end of the fi ve-year investment period, your full capital is returned. After a required period of residency in Canada, you become eligible for Canadian citizenship.

Conclusion

As full citizens of Canada, you and your family will become entitled to all the peace of mind and the freedoms that make Canadian citizenship so highly valued. You and your children and your children’s children will also be settled in one of the best countries in the world to do business. And as Canadians, you will have an asset that is beyond price—world citizenship.
