Depending on your net worth, ability and willingness to invest in Canada, managerial skills and business acumen, investing in Canada could be a route to permanent residence.
If you’re looking to make an investment in the Canadian economy, the government of Canada, as well as certain Canadian provinces, present some enticing options.
Immigrant Investor Venture Capital Pilot Program
The Immigrant Investor Venture Capital (IIVC) Pilot Program accepts applications from international investors who possess the necessary skills and abilities to contribute to the Canadian economy and to become well integrated into Canadian society. To qualify, investors are required to have a net worth of $10 million and make a non-guaranteed investment of $2 million over 15 years, to be invested in innovative Canadian-based start-ups with high growth potential.
Quebec Investor Program
The Quebec Investor category of Canadian immigration allows qualified immigrant investors to obtain a Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa by investing CAD$800,000 risk-free through an approved financial intermediary or by financing that investment.
Manitoba Business Investor Stream
The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program for Business (MPNP-B) is a stream which allows Manitoba to recruit and nominate qualified business people with the intent and ability to reside in the province and make a significant investment in a new or existing business and hold an active managerial role.
