Investors, Entrepreneurs, Self-employed Persons

Canada attracts investors from all across the world by offering them, and their family members, Canadian permanent resident status, in return for the investment they make in Canada.

There are currently two investor programs through which foreign nationals can immigrate to Canada; Federal Investor Program and Quebec Investor Program.

Both programs are similar in the qualifications that the investor applicants should have and in the amount of investment they need to make. 

Parallel to the investor program, Canada and Quebec both offer two other programs for Entrepreneurs, those who wish to establish a business and create jobs in Canada, as well as Self-employed persons, who wish to be their own boss.
