Quebec Investor Program Will Reopen on May 29, 2017

The Quebec Immigration Investor Program (QIIP), a Canadian immigration program that allows international investors to obtain Canadian permanent residence by investing CAD $800,000 risk-free, will reopen in less than two months.

The QIIP is Canada’s only passive investor immigration program, and is one of the most popular investor immigration programs globally, offering a number of advantages over investor immigration programs in other jurisdictions.

For example, there is no probationary or conditional stage, and a successful application leads to a Canadian permanent resident visa. This marks the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program as quite different to the EB-5 program in the United States, where applicants must prove that they created 10 jobs or more within two years. The Quebec Investor Program has no such provision.

Second, the investment of CAD $800,000 is submitted through an approved financial intermediary. This investment can be paid by the applicant or arranged through a financial intermediary financing option. The investment is guaranteed by a government of Quebec entity and returned in full after five years.

Third, immediate members of the candidate’s family (spouse or common-law partner and dependent children under the age of 19) may be included in the application, and these family members also obtain Canadian permanent residence. Successful applicants and their families may enjoy the benefits of permanent resident status, including universal health care, free public education, and access to world-class universities.

Finally, the Quebec Investor Program is a route not just to Canadian permanent resident status, but also to Canadian citizenship and the right to a Canadian passport. Currently, Canada’s citizenship naturalization criteria require only four years of residency in Canada within six years, and the current federal government aims to reduce this requirement to three years of residency out of five.


Minimum net worth

Applicants must have acquired a minimum of CAD $1.6 million in net worth by legitimate means, alone or with a spouse or partner. Assets such as property, bank accounts, pension funds, stocks, and shares may be included.


Applicants must intend to settle in Quebec and sign an investment agreement agreeing to invest CAD $800,000 with an approved financial intermediary. Applicants must sign an investment agreement with one of the financial intermediaries — a broker or trust company — authorized to participate in the program. The investment can be financed by a financial intermediary.

Management experience

Applicants must have acquired a minimum of two years’ management experience in the past five years. The experience is not limited to commercial activities, but can also be an international agency, department or government agency.

Preparation is key

The upcoming intake period for applications runs from May 29, 2017 to February 23, 2018, and up to 1,900 applications may be accepted for processing. Of these, a maximum of 1,330 applications may be accepted from foreign nationals of the People’s Republic of China, including the administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macao.

Based on previous application cycles, it seems likely that the QIIP intake cap may be reached before the scheduled end date.

Candidates with an “advanced intermediate” level in French are not subject to the intake cap, and may submit an application at any time. Moreover, their applications are given priority processing.

“For French-speaking and non-French-speaking investors alike, the announcement that Canada’s only passive investor immigration program is reopening is sure to come as exciting news,” says Attorney David Cohen.

“It is a truly unique program, in which investors may take a less hands-on approach to business than is the case in other programs in other countries. I would advise potential applicants to take initial steps — such as proving net worth and working with an eligible financial intermediary on the application — as early as possible, to ensure the greatest chance of success through this program.”

Express Entry Invitation to apply for 3749 candidates Immigrate to Canada

March 24 Express Entry draw offers Invitation to apply for 3,749 candidates to immigrate to Canada

March 24 Express entry draw offers Invitation to apply for 3,749 candidates to immigrate to Canada

March 24 Explicit entry draw offers Invitation to apply for 3,749 candidates to immigrate to Canada

The Express entry draw held on March 24 has offered invitations to apply to 3, 749 candidates in the express entry pool who had secured 441 points or more in the Comprehensive Ranking System.

This was the second draw held for the month of March 2017. Though there was a gap between the two draws held in this month, it is a positive thing that would have been noticed by those who received the ITAs and other applicants in the pool that every month a minimum of two draws are being held by the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.

The trends in the Express entry draws for the last few months reveals that increased numbers of applicants are being invited to apply when compared to the previous years. In 2016 by the month of March totally 9, 465 applicants were issued the ITAs while by this year March almost 24, 653 applicants have been offered the ITAs which is a huge increase of 160%, quotes CIC News.

This along with betterment of the Express entry scheme at the end of 2016 has resulted in the decrease in the requirement of qualifying CRS points.

While the CRS threshold for the draw held on March 24 was seven points higher when compared to the draw held on March 1, 441 points as CRS threshold is still lesser when compared to all the draws that were held in 2016.

The marginal increase in CRS point’s threshold can be partially attributed to the comparatively longer gap between the two consecutive draws held in March this year. This would have permitted a number of candidates to enter the draw while compared normally and also allowed more applicants to increase their CRS points in the meanwhile.

Candidates who have been offered the ITAs will now be able to submit the application for permanent residency in Canada to the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada. The principal applicant is also permitted to be accompanied by family members that include spouse, dependent children, or common-law partner.

The 441 points CRS threshold implies that an applicant who is a graduate and does not have extra points for provincial nomination, no Canadian work experience, no job offer in Canada and no previous study in Canada can secure the ITA provided that the applicant has secured the required proficiency levels for one of the official languages of Canada i.e. French or English.

Attorney David Cohn has said that this eagerly anticipated Express entry draw will be welcomed by both those who are remaining in the pool and those who have received the ITAs. The former group of applicants is advised to keep themselves updated regarding all the nomination programs of the Canadian provinces, said Cohen. They are also advised to make efforts to enhance their points to increase their CRS total
