Canada Business Immigration Programs Remain Attractive to High Net Worth Investors


High net worth investors are continuing to be drawn to Canada despite the lack of a federal passive investment immigration program leading to Canadian permanent residence, a new report has found.

Global Data’s ‘Wealth in Canada: HNW Investors 2017’ report found that expats accounted for one in five high net worth investors in Canada in 2016.

This is despite the previous Conservative government moving to wind up the Canada Immigrant Investor Program in 2014. Currently, the only passive investment route to Canadian permanent residence is the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP), which remains extremely popular.

Under QIIP, candidates with a legally acquired net worth of at least $1.6 million are required to invest $800,000 over five years bearing no interest. The program is currently accepting new applications, with the current window set to close on February 23, 2018.

QIIP: Primary Requirements

  • Have a legally acquired personal net worth of $1.6 million CAD;

  • Possess two years of suitable management or business experience within the five years preceding the application;

  • Commit to making an investment of $800,000 CAD into a passive government guaranteed investment for a period of five years bearing no interest;

  • Intend to settle in the province of Quebec.

Canada is a popular destination for investor immigrants because of its political stability, excellent quality of life and rebounding economy. It is a popular destination for high net worth Chinese expats, who are key drivers of the world’s investment immigration programs.

Although the QIIP is the only remaining passive investment program, several of the Canadian provinces manage their own active business and entrepreneur streams. But without exception, all such programs operate under strict, limited quotas. The options for permanent residence under business immigration programs are thus very limited.

Federally, the two most prominent options are the Start-Up Visa Program and Self-Employed Class. It was recently announced that the Start-Up Visa program would become a permanent offering in 2018 when the pilot period expires. The federal Immigrant Investor Venture Capital Pilot Program is still operational, but investment and net worth requirements make it unviable.

Canada’s Federal and Provincial Business Immigration Programs

Many applicants to Canada are looking to alternative pathways to Canada. Once such option is applying under Canada’s business immigration temporary work visa program.

Given Canada’s continued strong draw for immigrant investors, the federal government should consider re-introducing a viable passive investment program, offering permanent residence. The Quebec model is an excellent example of the benefits a passive program can generate.

The benefits of the QIIP to Quebec are undeniable. From 2001-2016, it gave $714 million to 4,737 businesses in 17 territories in the province. A compelling 2010 study conducted by three economists in Ontario and Quebec concluded that an average investor directly injects more than $770,000 into the economy during a five-year investment period.

Additionally, a recent statistics Canada report, Immigration, Business Ownership and Employment in Canada, confirms that immigrants are more likely than Canadians to establish businesses.

Ottawa should also consider establishing a citizenship through investment program, for ultra high net worth individuals and become a dominant Tier 1 country in the citizenship through investment arena.
