The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QCIIP), one of the world’s most popular immigrant investor programs is open for applications from May 30, 2016 to February 28, 2017.

Applicants who demonstrate intermediate language skills in French are not included in the quota. They are eligible for priority processing and can submit applications from April 1, 2016 until March 31, 2017.

The eligibility requirements remain the same:

  • Invest CA$ 800,000 through an authorized financial intermediary and declare your intend to settle in Quebec
  • Have experience in managing or owning a business for at least two of the last five years.

Investors have the option of financing their investment through an authorized financial intermediary at competitive interest rates.

  • Quebec: CA$15,000 to the Government of Quebec (all dependents included)
  • Canada: CA$ 475 (main applicant), CA$ 550 (spouse) and CA$ 150 (dependents below 19).
