Canada Business Immigration - Investor Category
Citizenship and Immigration Canada established the Immigrant Investor Program to promote economic development and employment in Canada by attracting people with capital, business acumen and/or solid managerial skills for business immigration to Canada.
As an immigrant investor, you and your immediate family can obtain Canadian immigration (permanent resident) visas by investing CAD$800,000 for five years with the government of Canada. Applicants to this program must intend to reside in any Canadian province or territory except Quebec. The investment is government guaranteed, assuring that your CAD$800,000 will be reimbursed in full at the end of five years. No interest is paid on your investment.
Investment of CAD$800,000 of your own funds.
In order to meet the investment requirement, you may choose to make a government-guaranteed investment of CAD$800,000 of your own funds with the government of Canada. These funds are then kept with the government for a period of five years, after which they are returned to you in full with 0% interest;
