Quebec’s one of the most well-known programs for investors is all set to open within the next two months. The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP) is a Canadian Immigration program specifically designed for the international investors.

- The investment of QIIP which equals an amount of CAD $800,000 can be paid by the applicant or arranged through a financial financing source. The benefit here is that the investment is guaranteed by Government authority of Quebec and returned to the investor in full after completion of five years.
- The QIIP program of Canadian immigration allows immediate members (spouse/common-law partner and dependent children under 19 yrs) of the applicant’s family to be included in the application. These members also become Canadian permanent residents by obtaining a Canada PR visa after a successful application. Plus, the entire family gets to enjoy all benefits of a PR visa holder- free healthcare and medical, ease of education in world-class universities of Canada etc.
