Federal Investor Program (Terminated)

Under this program, the government of Canada demands an investment of C$800,000 based on which the applicant as well as the applicant’s family members will be given permanent residency in Canada.

Note: As of 19 June 2014, this program is no more available. The information provided on this page is for our clients who had taken part in this program prior to the program termination.

  • The applicant (along with family, if applicable) much choose to reside in any province or territory in Canada other than the province of Quebec;
  • The applicant must have a minimum net worth of C$1.6 million (this can be shared assets also, wherein the assets of the applicant as well as the applicant’s spouse or common-law partner are taken into consideration);
  • The applicant need to make a 5-year interest-free investment of C$800,000, which will be returned to the applicant by the government at the end of the 5-year tenure. The investment can be made in 2 ways:

Investing your own fund: The applicant may make a government-guaranteed investment of C$800,000. This investment will be retained by the government for a period of exactly 5 years from the date the investment was made, after which the full amount of C$800,000 will be returned to the applicant with no interest.

Getting help of a government approved financial institution: The applicant may also choose to approach a government-approved financial institution for the funds. The applicant will need to pay a one-time financing fee to the financial institution, following which the institution will invest C$800,000 on behalf of the applicant with the government.
