Difference between Quebec and Federal Investor Programs

Quebec program has broader consideration for people having managerial experience in a government, governmental organization or multinational concern. As such, the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program may be suitable to individuals with diversified backgrounds, as the Federal isn’t. Quebec will also consider wider range of management duties such as HR, financial and material resources, whereas the Federal program only focuses on mamagement of people. 

Amir Ismail & Associates (AIA) is authorized to deal in both the immigrant imvestor programs and we have sufficient experience in assisting our clients in selection of the most suitable program that best addresses their needs.

Re-opening of the Quebec Investor Program from 1st August 2013

Following the attendance of an important meeting by financial intermediaries with the Quebec Immigration Authorities in Montreal on June 12, 2013, we have learnt that the Quebec Investor Program will re-open from August 1st, 2013. It is reassuring to learn that the investment and net worth amount will remain the same, i.e. $CA800,000 and $CA1.6 million respectively)

However, there are chances of application fee being increased to $CA10,000. We have been advised that the Minister will have the right to limit the number of files from any given country and cease accepting files at any given time. We anticipate that the Quebec immigration department will accept around 2,000 files in total.

Criteria in a Nutshell - Do you qualify as an investor?

You must:

* have a minimum net worth of C$1,600,000
* have 2 years of management experience
* make a mandatory investment of C$800,000 
          * with the option of financing of up to C$620,000
          * of 5 years
          * that is government-guaranteed
          * with 0% interest

We understand that the Quebec immigration department is in communication with the Federal Immigration authorities regarding changes to the Program, notably with respect to the investment and net-worth amounts. It seems that both governments are discussing an investment amount of $CA2 million. In order to benefit from the current lower investment requirement and in view of the limited quota available, we recommend prospective clients to start preparing their applications immediately to keep them ready for submission on 1st August 2013.
