The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program remains temporarily suspended.

March 31, 2021

Following the publication in the Quebec Official Gazette on March 31, 2021, the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP) will remain on hold.

However, the Quebec Immigration Ministry (MIFI) made it clear that they are in the final stages of a new formula and just need to get a Federal approval. This will allow you to come to Quebec before obtaining the Permanent Resident status. This is good news as it will fast track your family's arrival in Quebec.

The Government is confident that they could publish the new requirements of the QIIP in the coming weeks with an official launch by the summer 2021.  The MIFI has also made it clear that the condition to settle in Quebec will be reinforced. 

In the meantime, we are still accepting files to be reviewed and prepared in anticipation of the reopening announcement. Act now as this is a quota-based Program.

Our national team is looking forward to discussing with you the only passive investor Program that allows you to obtain the Canadian permanent residency. For any inquiries, we invite you to contact us at 1-800-363-3915 or by email at [email protected]

Quebec Immigrant Investor Program reopening on September 10

July 18, 2018

The Ministère de l’immigration, de la diversité et de l’inclusion (MIDI), released today the updated immigration regulation, with the new criteria for the Quebec Immigrant Investor program, one of the most popular business immigration programs.

The files must be submitted between September 10, 2018, and March 15, 2019. The quota system is still applicable (maximum of 1,900 applications among which a maximum of 1,235 from the People’s Republic of China (including Hong Kong and Macao)).

Candidates who can demonstrate an intermediate advanced level of the French language and their applications will be processed in priority by the MIDI and are exempt from quota and application time limitations.

To qualify, the immigrant must:

- Have net assets of at least Can$2 million
- Invest Can$1,2 million, guaranteed by the government of Quebec, for 5 years at 0% interest
- Have experience in management for at least 2 years in the 5 years preceding the application

Quebec Immigrant Investor Program to reopen in August 2018

March 29, 2018

On March 28, 2018, the Quebec government issued a ministerial order announcing the temporary suspension of most of its immigration programs, notably the Immigrant Investor Program, from April 1 to August 15, 2018. At the same time, the government published a draft regulation with significant changes to a number of its programs, including the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program.

Hence, under the draft regulation, the investment threshold will rise from CAN$800,000 to CAN$1.2M. Moreover, the minimum net worth requirement will increase from CAN$1.6M to CAN$2M. All other requirements remain the same.

The revised program should come into effect in August 2018.

As the quota system will still apply, the sooner we receive files, the sooner we will be able to submit them.

We look forward to providing you with our expertise and guidance for your applications under the proposed criteria.
