Quebec Business Immigration
To help attract international business owners to the province, Quebec offers programs that make it easier for entrepreneurs, investors and self-employed individuals immigrate.
The main requirement of the Quebec Business Immigration Program is for applicants to prove that they can be economically established upon arrival to Canada, with the intention of permanently settling in Quebec upon arrival.
Once you are successfully accepted, you will receive a Quebec Selection Certificate, and can then meet the federal requirements set by the Government of Canada to be approved for permanent residency.
There are three unique Quebec Business Immigration Programs, each with their distinct requirements and selection process:

Once that amount has been invested, you are able to obtain your Canadian Permanent Residence designation.
With only 1,900 application spaces available between September 2018 and the deadline of August 31, 2019, it is essential that any interested investors submit their application as quickly as possible.
