Auray Capital Canada

AURAY Capital Canada was born from a transaction between two industry leaders, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton and Desjardins, one of Canada’s largest financial institutions. Desjardins, an established leader in the field with an extensive team of experts, was active in the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program since 1990 and the Federal Immigrant Investor Programs since 2001.

AURAY Capital Canada is an investment dealer and as such, a member of the Canadian Investor Protection Fund, protecting customers’ accounts within specified limits up to $1 million CAD, and is also regulated by the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada. This ensures that the firm operates under the strictest industry standards in the country.

AURAY Capital Canada is authorized by the Government of Quebec, the Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion and Investissement Québec to act as financial intermediary for the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program.

Our team of experts offers immigration practitioners and their clients assistance throughout every step of the business immigration process. Our services include, but are not limited to:

  • Analysis of a file with recommendations;
  • Support and advice in responding to additional documentation requests from the government;
  • Preparation and coaching of candidates and their families for selection interviews;

Auray Capital International

In order to adapt to the ever changing landscape of global business immigration, AURAY Capital International was created to offer a wide range of residency and citizenship by investment programs. These programs provide high-net-worth individuals with opportunities to gain greater mobility, a second place of residence for themselves and their families, broader educational opportunities for their children, and a safe haven for their assets and their loved ones.

The competition to attract high-net-worth individuals and entrepreneurs has increased in the last decade, with many countries opening their borders to foreign investors. AURAY Capital International’s expertise enables us to collaborate with governments that wish to implement or modify their business immigration programs. Our team has a long history of working with governments to assess their programs and provide advice. Our success is based on years of experience in designing competitive programs to attract the best global investors.

As a member of Grant Thornton, our select clients benefit from Grant Thornton’s diverse portfolio of highly specialized products and services aimed at high-net-worth individuals, businesses and governments. From wealth management to real estate, tax planning and consulting services, our global partners can assist clients with their transition.
