The Quebec Business Immigration Program is a category of Canadian immigration that is accessible to individuals of high net worth with relevant business management experience. The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP) is designed by the Quebec government to attract investors and their capital to Quebec, Canada. By investing CAD 800,000 in Quebec, the applicant and immediate family are granted permanent residency in Canada, and thus investors are free to reside in any desired province of Canada.
Starting May 30th2016, the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP) is accepting new applications from investors from around the world. The program is due to close on February 28th2016 and will be accepting a maximum of 1,900 applications in total. Any candidates who have an intermediate-advanced level of French language proficiency are not included in this quota; their applications will be given priority processing.
This is a great opportunity for investors seeking Canadian Permanent Residency through the Quebec immigrant Investor Program (QIIP). The applicant is able to obtain a visa to enter Canada with his/her immediate family (dependents), and later be granted permanent residency in Canada. Once a candidate is a permanent resident in Canada they are able to apply for Canadian citizenship once all necessary requirements are met.
Permanent residency is granted to the investor and immediate family (a dependent child must be under 19 years old), allowing the family to share the same status.
As a permanent resident the candidate has the right to:
1. Get most social benefits that Canadian citizens receive, including health care coverage,
2. Live, work or study anywhere in Canada,
3. Apply for Canadian citizenship (if requirements are met),
4. Protection under Canadian law and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
