Applicants with an “advanced intermediate” level in French are not subject to the admission cap. In addition, their applications are given priority processing. A maximum of 1330 applications might be acknowledged from foreign nationals of the People’s Republic of China, including the authoritative locales of Hong Kong and Macao.

In comparison to many other immigration programs around the globe, the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program clearly outweighs the rest.

For the EB5 program, candidates may acquire a two-year green card that is restrictive on demonstrating that they made 10 occupations or more in that time period, while the Quebec program has no such procurement. Also the investment of CAD $800,000 is ensured by a Quebec government substance and returned in full after five years or can be financed by a Canadian financial establishment. Additionally, the investment prerequisite is far less cumbersome than other investor immigration programs, including the government of Canada’s Immigrant Investor Venture Capital Pilot Program.
Lastly, every prompt individual from the hopeful’s family, spouse or common-law partner or kids less than 19 years old are incorporated into the application and have the same status as the competitor.
