Canada Immigration Investor Program
The Canadian government offers a number of creative paths to applying for residence and citizenship within Canada. One process is the Immigration Investor Program that allows foreign individuals and families to place significant investments within the Canadian economy.
This is a carefully regulated and complex method for attaining citizenship, and requires the advice and guidance of an experienced immigration lawyer. If you are considering this method of application, please call our immigration law office in Edmonton today to book a personal appointment or in-depth phone conversation.
Eligibility For Canada’s Immigration Investor Program
- Demonstrate business experience in managing an equity interest in a qualifying business for at least 2 of the past 5 years, or managing a minimum of five full-time employees for at least 2 of the past 5 years
- Have a minimum net worth of $1,600,000 (Cdn funds), acquired through lawful means;

The Immigration Investor Program Process
In applying, and working through, the Immigration Investor Program there are 4 major milestones in the process. Some require involvement by the applicant. Others steps in the process can be handled by our immigration lawyers through power of attorney. This application is a linear process so progress is dependent on the completion of previous steps.
Step 1 / Month 1-2
Completion and submission of the application with the inclusion of application fees. Canadian Immigration will send confirmation of the file’s creation, including a file number.
Step 2 / Month 10-18
This is an initial discovery period where Canadian Immigration may require additional details, documents, medical statements, criminal background checks, and possibly interviews with the applicants. The successful completion of this step produces a Conditional Acceptance.
Step 3 / Month 18-24
Upon receiving a Conditional Acceptance, the applicant will be required to submit their committed financial investment through the available investment options. This step is facilitated by our legal team, ensuring that funds have been properly transferred to Canadian Immigration Authorities.
Step 4 / Month 24-36
Upon funds being received, Canada Immigration will request for, and issue, a Canadian Permanent Residence Visa, requiring completed payment of deposit upon landing in Canada. At this time, the applicant, and their immediate family, are considered a Permanent Resident.
