Quebec to Accept 1,750 New Applications Under Investor Program
Between now and March 20, 2015, the Quebec government will be accepting 1,750 new applications under the investor program. Of the 1,750 applicants, 1,200 will be set aside for applicants from China, Hong Kong, and Macau.
The newly re-launched investor program has been welcomed by individuals with a high net worth looking to gain Canadian permanent residence via “passive” investment scheme.
Potential investors who are interested in living in Quebec are being urged by financial intermediaries involved in Quebec’s immigrant investor program to apply ASAP, as only the very best applications will be retained after analysis.
To give you an idea of how sought after these places are, a total of 5,000 applications were sent in 2013, with only 1,250 of that number eventually being accepted.
Are you eligible?
To be selected under the investor program, you must have net assets totaling at least $1.6 million, and be able to invest $800,00 via Investissement Québec. You must also plan on settling (living and working) in Quebec.
Once invested, the capital is then placed in a five-year Quebec government term note – no interest will be acquired during this time, but the amount will still be under guarantee by the government.
Your investment will be used to help support the development of companies in Quebec, along with creating new jobs and adding to economic growth – something Quebec needs to ensure a prosperous future.

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.
This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!
VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
