Immigration programme under Investor category is aimed at attracting wealthy people interested in immigration to Canada, but would not like to tie themselves by the obligations to organize and manage business upon arrival in Canada. Who can make an application under the Canada Investor Visa Programme?

There are several requirements to the potential immigrant under this category. You will have to confirm the legally obtained net worth of $1,600,000 CAD. This amount may include funds and assets that belong to a spouse. You also will need to show your business experience and invest $800,000 into Canadian economy. In addition to that you will need to score a minimum of 35 points out of 100 under such categories as work experience, age, education, knowledge of official Canadian languages (English or French) and adaptability.

Your business experience can be confirmed in two ways.

  • Management experience and ownership of profitable business for 2 years out of 5 before the application. The spreadsheet below shows the factors used by the immigration authorities to assess business experience based on various shares of business ownership. You will need to satisfy 2 out of 4 factors. Factors % share of the ownership
    100% 50% 33.33%
