Canada Investor Visa
As an immigrant investor, you and your immediate family can obtain Canadian immigration (permanent resident) visas by investing CAD$800,000 for five years with the government of Canada. The investment is government guaranteed, assuring that your CAD$800,000 will be reimbursed in full at the end of five years. No interest is paid on your investment.
When making your investment under Canada Investor Visa program, you can choose one of two options:
- Investment of CAD$800,000 of your own funds. In order to meet the investment requirement, you may choose to make a government-guaranteed investment of CAD$800,000 of your own funds with the government of Canada. These funds are then kept with the government for a period of five years, after which they are returned to you in full with 0% interest;
- Payment of a financing fee. Instead of depositing CAD$800,000, you may choose to pay a one-time financing fee to a government-approved financial institution. This fee will not be returned to you. The financial institution will then invest CAD$800,000 with the government on your behalf.
