Successful entrepreneurs, with all their experience, energy and resources, make exceptional citizens. Canada’s two Immigrant Investor Programs have been designed to help them bring their valuable skills to Canada.
The central feature is the same for both the Government of Canada’s Immigrant Investor Program and the Government of Quebec’s Immigrant Investor Program: each requires that the applicant invest in a 5-year, zero-interest government-guaranteed note.
In both cases, the interest from the note is put to work fi nancing new Canadian businesses, supporting existing ones and helping generate employment for Canadian citizens. At the end of 5 years, your full capital is returned and you enjoy the satisfaction of having made an important contribution to the economy of your new country and the well-being of your new fellow citizens.
