Many investors with families choose to immigrate for one main reason: the betterment of the lives of their children. Most parents want to ensure that their children get the best possible start in the world, and they can do so by providing a good education. Tuition fees around the world are costly, especially since investors are looking to invest in only the best schools for their children’s futures.
The good news is that in Canada, high quality education is free from kindergarten through grade 12. This means that between the ages of 5 and 17 years old, children can attend schools (equivalent to high end education in many countries) completely free of charge. Although university is not free, there are many government programs available, including loans, bursaries, and scholarship programs. The Canadian government believes in funding education as the children are the country’s future doctors, engineers, and politicians. Each province is responsible for overseeing its own curriculum. Canada’s free education may be one of the primary reasons that the country has one of the highest literacy rates in the world.
The right to education in Canada can be attained by first getting permanent residence in Canada. High net worth investors and entrepreneurs have several program options they can apply through to obtain permanent residency. Each province has its own program(s) with their own regulations and qualifications. Nomination by the province (or selection by Quebec) is received first before admission to Canada is granted by the Federal government.
Since May 30th, the Quebec government has been accepting applications for its highly esteemed Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP). Applicants are required to make a risk-free, passive investment of 800,000 CAD with Investissement Quebec for a period of five years. Once the five years are over, the full amount is returned to the applicant. To learn about our financing options, please contact us.
The education system in Quebec has the added benefit of being able to learn two languages - both French and English. Living in this multilingual world, it is very important to know more than one language. Speaking more than one language can help to progress in one’s career. It is also an important tool to be able to gain awareness of other cultures in our increasingly globalized world.
Investors can invest in their children’s education by investing in Canada. There they can offer their children the best education for free.
