For Quebec immigration, one of the most popular business immigration programs is the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (“QIIP”). However, the Quebec provincial government has suspended the intake of new application for this program until June 30, 2020. The suspension of application is applicable from November 1st, 2019. If you had been planning to apply for QIIP, then you can use this time period to make your case stronger and do all the necessary homework until the suspension period is over. This way, when the government starts accepting new applications, you will have a head start.
The primary requirements for the Quebec immigrant investor program included, at the time of suspension:
- You needed to demonstrate your personal net worth of at least $2 million which should be legally acquired by you.
- You also needed to demonstrate that you have owned and operated a business for two years in the previous five years or you have held a high-level management position for two years in the previous five years.
- You needed to have invest $1.2million in a passive government guaranteed investment for over a period of five years without receiving any interest.
Once the suspension is lifted, Daniel Masse, as a Canadian immigration lawyer, will be in a great position to provide you guidance with regards to the new applicable rules.
