Canada Investor Visas – The ULTIMATE Guide

Canadian Immigrant Investor Visas

Second Citizenship and residency by investment is no longer the preserve of the few. Migration Investment programmes are now the fastest growing area of immigration law globally.

Increasingly, our clients are choosing a second citizenship not just to benefit from higher standards of living, but also as a vital part of an effective freedom, privacy and security strategy.

Canada wants sophisticated investors and offers several routes to permanent residency for entrepreneurial investors. Which route is right for you may depend on your business experience, capital available, and whether you plan to emigrate to retire, build a business, or simply enjoy the freedoms allowed second-passport holders. 

Why Emigrate as an Investor?

Many of our applicants simply choose an investment visa as a simple route to Canadian permanent residency, which fits their goals and cost requirements. 

Investor visas provide an extremely attractive option. While there are limited places available per year, we can secure permanent residency for our investors in just a couple of years, and manage the process from start to finish.

Our professional team can help get your application filed quickly, and hold your place for one of the world's most popular residency by investment visas.

Last Chance...

If you have missed previous opportunities due to changes in Canadian immigration law, or would not qualify for other programmes, an investor visa could be the opportunity you're looking for. 

Successful applicants arrive in Canada having already contributed to the Canadian community they are joining. So factors used to filter other applicants to other visa programmes -- including age, education and language skills -- are not disqualifying factors for investor visas.  

Don't miss out. Even long-established immigration programmes are subject to change. The Federal Investor visa programme was hugely popular, but the last government ended it, closing pending applications that shut-out more than 15,000 applicants and family members.

Our expert emigration lawyers and advisors have years of experience advising on the process of using a qualifying investment to secure Canadian permanent residency. Contact us to explore all your options.

Residency by Investment Solutions

We provide access to government-approved, secure investment funds. We work with our clients to invest in Canada in a compliant manner to secure permanent residency quickly. 

Over the past 20 years, we have developed an excellent track record for completing the necessary investment deals from a range of options we now have available to our clients to secure permanent residency based on these investments. 

The Benefits

  • Investment without risk: The investment of CAD $1,200,000 is guaranteed by the Quebec government and returned in full after five years.

  • Passive investment: No active managerial role is required after the investment is made.

  • Family included in the application: All immediate members of the candidate's family (spouse and dependent children) are included in the application and have the same status as the candidate.

  • Benefits of permanent resident status: Enjoy the same benefits provided to Canadians (universal health care, free public education, access to world-class universities, etc.)

Looking for a Still More Certain Option?

Perhaps you'd prefer having someone else invest for you. They stake the required investment, you get the visa.

Too good to be true? On the contrary, it is the most popular arrangement among investment visas overall, and the advantages are compelling.

The low-risk nature of the government bond means our Quebec-authorised financiers are willing to forward investment funds to the programme on your behalf. They calculate the cost of having those funds set-aside over the given timeframe, and you pay a one-time charge to cover the anticipated interest, fees and costs.  

So instead of having  CAD $1.2 million tied-up for 5 years, with the opportunity cost that entails, you pay a fee certain, and your involvement with the investment side of the visa ends. 

The cost of this opportunity is calculated upon application, and can vary depending on various factors including prevailing market rates.
