Canadian Immigrant Investor Program
The Canada Business Immigration Program enables business owners and qualified managers to immigrate to Canada with their families through the Immigrant Investor Program.
Eligibility is based on an assessment of your net worth and your business or management background. The threshold amount for net worth is currently just over £500,000
. Business owners are required to show an ownership interest and management role in a qualifying business while business managers must have 2 years experience
at the required level. Finally there is a qualifying points test.

Once your application is approved you are required to make an investment of CA$800,000 with the Canadian or Quebec government for a period of 5 years. In practice this investment is almost always financed which significantly reduced the outlay and overall cost to you. Our banking relationships in Canada and the UK mean that we have access to the most competitive financing options available.
Once your visa is approved you are free to settle in Canada with your family. There are no restrictions on you once you do settle in Canada.
You and your spouse are free to work, set up business and purchase property. You will have access to state education, health care and other benefits enjoyed by Canadian citizens. After 3 years you will be eligible for Canadian citizenship.

In determining your net worth we will prepare Accounts showing the value of all of the assets of you and your spouse as well as all of the liabilities of you and your spouse.
The figures used must be fair market value and evidence of this is required in the application. The value of your combined assets must exceed your combined liabilities by at least CA$1.6 million.
All of your assets must have been obtained legally and, in some instances, evidence of source of income is required.
