How Quebec Immigrant Investor Program operates
In the past, the requirement was an investment worth CAD $800, 000 with net assets of CAD$1.6 million, but that has changed slightly according to CIC News says
The new change became effective August 2. It’s now CAD $2 million in net asset and CAD $1.2 million of investment.
The investment must be for a five-year term and the investment agreement must be made through a financial intermediary authorized to participate in the QIIP.
The investment of CAD $1.2 million is guaranteed by the Quebec government and will be returned in full after five years.
Other requirement stipulates that all interested candidates must obtain a passing score under Quebec’s points system.
QIIP can simply be described as Investment opportunities for managers and entrepreneurs.
