Applicants must invest CA$800,000 in a government-guaranteed investment and demonstrate a net worth of CA$1.6 million. Successful applicants will receive permanent residency in Quebec and may apply for Canadian citizenship after three years provided they meet certain conditions.

French-speaking applicants may apply as well at any time and are not bound by the program’s quota.

Introduction to the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program

Arton Investments is active with international investors on the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program. Foreign investors looking to immigrate to Canada have access to various programs designed to help them secure permanent resident visas and the right to live, work and do business anywhere in Canada. Among such programs, the Immigrant Investor Program offered by Arton Investments is one of the most popular.

Created by the provincial government in 1986, Quebec’s Immigrant Investor Program is designed to allow business people and their families to enter the province of Quebec as permanent residents on an unconditional basis. In return, funding made available through the program helps provide subsidies in support of Quebec small and medium businesses.

Our associate in this Program is Arton Capital (website) led by Mr. Armand Arton, who is one of Arton Investments’s Executive Vice Presidents. Mr. Arton oversees the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program.
