Know More about the Program

The applicants in this program only need to make the investment as per above specification; they don’t need to start or continue any business in the province of application.
Quebec grants a successful selection certificate from the provincial government to the chosen applicants.
These applicants are then scheduled to pass the criminal and health checks. After successful clearance of these checks, the Federal Government of Canada grants them the permanent residency of Canada.
The aforesaid investment has to be made with Investissement Québec for five years, post which the capital amount is returned to the investor without any interest. The five year period is to be counted from the date of issuance of the selection certificate.
