Investor Program

Be sure to read the immigration rules and procedures and the information regarding intake periods for Québec selection applications before submitting your application.


Under the Regulation respecting quotas of brokers and trust companies (PDF, 42 KB) that came into force on July 15, 2015, financial intermediaries must be allocated an investment agreement quota in order to sign an agreement with an immigration candidate who submits a Québec selection application.

To be eligible for the Investor Program, you must:

  • Have, alone or with your accompanying spouse or de facto spouse, legally acquired net assets of at least C$2,000,000, excluding any amounts received by donation less than six months before your application is submitted
  • Have management experience in a legal farming, commercial or industrial business; in a legal professional business whose staff, excluding you, occupies at least the equivalent of two full-time jobs; in an international agency; or with a government or one of its departments or agencies
    • We define management experience as the exercise, for at least two years in the five years preceding the application for a selection certificate, of duties related to the planning, management and control of financial, human or material resources under your authority. This does not include experience acquired in an apprenticeship, training or specialization leading to a diploma.
  • Intend to settle in Québec and sign an agreement to invest C$1,200,000 with a financial intermediary (broker or trust company) authorized to participate in the Investor Program

Your application will also be assessed on other factors, such as your age, education and language skills.


  • The investment agreement is one of the documents to be submitted with the Québec selection application.
  • The investment of C$1,200,000 for a five-year term is guaranteed by the Government of Québec.
  • Brokers and trust companies offer the possibility of financing the investment.
  • Revenues generated by the applicant’s investment will be used to finance two Québec business assistance programs: Business Assistance—Immigrant Investor Program (BAIIP) and Employment Integration Program for Immigrants and Visible Minorities (PRIIME).
  • At the end of the five-year term, the broker or trust company will reimburse the applicant C$1,200,000 without interest, within 30 days. However, the amount reimbursed may vary if the applicant secured financing for the investment.
