Federal immigrant investor program for investors and business entrepreneurs
The Business Immigration Program is designed to attract experienced business people to Canada in order to support the development of the Canadian economy. A business immigrant applying via this program is expected to make an 800,000 CAD$ investment and become a permanent resident. The immigrant investor must meet certain experience and/or net worth criteria:
- show they have business experience;
- make an 800,000 CAD$ investment;
- have a minimum net worth of C$1,600,000 obtained legally.
The investment is managed by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. It is guaranteed by the Canadian provinces that use it in order to create jobs and help their respective economies grow. Once the immigrant investor application is approved, the applicant must make an investment within 30 days before a permanent resident visa will be issued. The visa office sends a letter with the necessary instructions. Citizenship and Immigration Canada will return the initial 800,000 CAD$ investment without interest approximately five years and two months after payment

The investment immigration application will be delayed if:
