Investors are those persons who have operated, controlled or directed a financially successful business or commercial undertaking and have accumulated a net worth of, at least, C$1,600,000. Investors are required to make an investment of a minimum of $800,000 for at least five years by depositing this amount with the Canadian government. This investment has to be made prior to approval of the immigration case and the investment is secured against loss. The immigrant is refunded the full $800,000 after five years and three months, WITHOUT interest.
Those who wish to partake in the investor immigration program may live anywhere in Canada. Hence their place of residence is not determined by the location of their investment.
We can also arrange loans/financing from recognized institutions & banks so that you will not have to disburse the entire $800,000.
The new Investor definition drops the current requirement that the net worth be created by the Investor’s own endeavours.
The new regulation defines an Investor to mean:
An immigrant who:
- has business experience
- has a net worth of at least C$1,600,000
- Indicates to the Minister, in writing, and establishes to the satisfaction of a visa officer that they have made an investment of C$800,000.or definition drops the current requirement that the net worth be created by the Investor’s own endeavor.
