International investors with a personal net worth of CDN $10 million or more, the skills and abilities needed to contribute to the Canadian economy and integrate into Canadian society, may be eligible to apply for permanent residence under the Immigrant Investor Venture Capital (IIVC) Pilot Program.
Business or investment activities under IIVCPP are a popular reason for immigration to Canada. If you are suitable to be an immigrant investor, you will have to show that you obtained your net worth of a minimum of CDN $10 million through legal investment activities or profit-making business.
For example, these may include:
- Money gained through private sector activities, such as private equity placements or public equity investment.
- Capital or income gains obtained through the management or ownership of for-profit, commercial entities.
Please, take into account that personal net worth gained in the value of your primary residence or through inheritance is not valid for the program. They are not investment or business activities for this program’s purpose.
You should also be aware that all selected investors must get a due diligence report from a selected service provider to confirm the source of their assets.
