Individuals wishing to become residents of Canada by investment can avail themselves of programs such as the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP) to help them relocate.
Under this program, eligible investors and their immediate family can become permanent residents of Canada. The essential criteria include:
Have alone, or with an accompanying spouse, minimum net assets worth C$2,000,000 gained legally;
Have qualifying management experience for at least two years during the five years preceding the submission of an immigration application;
Have the intention to settle in Quebec, sign an investment agreement with an authorized financial intermediary and invest C$1,200,000 for five years at 0% interest (financing is available through the AURAY Golden Plan).
Our subsidiary, AURAY Capital Canada is an investment dealer and financial intermediary authorized by the Government of Quebec for the QIP. We can support you throughout every step of the immigration process.
