Quebec Immigrant Investor Program

 

La province de Québec offre un Programme Immigrants investisseurs qui attire les personnes fortunées et leurs familles et qui relève du ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion. La société québécoise est moderne, pluraliste et égalitaire. Elle a accueilli plus de 45 000 nouveaux immigrants chaque année depuis 2004. Alors que le français est la langue officielle de la province, l’anglais est largement parlé dans les grandes villes et le milieu des affaires. En vertu du Programme Immigrants investisseurs, les revenus générés par l’investissement de l'immigrant investisseur sont utilisés pour financer les programmes provinciaux d’aide aux petites et moyennes entreprises, ainsi que pour l’intégration des immigrants et des minorités visibles dans les lieux de travail (Programme PRIIME).

Benefits

Le Québec sélectionne les candidats qui sont retenus pour son Programme Immigrants Investisseurs et leur accorde un Certificat de sélection du Québec. Ce document permet aux investisseurs et à leurs familles immédiates de présenter une demande de visa de résidence permanente auprès du gouvernement fédéral du Canada, d’obtenir ce visa sans condition et, en dernier lieu, d’avoir le droit de demander la citoyenneté canadienne après avoir respecté les exigences de résidence.
