Quebec Investor


Online Assessment Form

 The Quebec government will be accepting a maximum of 1750 applications to the Investor Program between August 31st, 2015 and January 31st, 2016. Any applications received after that date will be returned. If the number of applications received during the prescribed period exceeds 1750, a randomized draw will determine which applications are processed.

There is no cap for investors who speak high level of French.

 The Ministère de l’Immigration et des communautés culturelles (MICC) du Québec understands the federal government’s intention to abolish its immigrant investor and entrepreneur programs.

However, Citizenship and Immigration Canada has confirmed that the Ministère’s Immigrant Investor Program and Immigration Entrepreneur Program will not be affected by this decision. Moreover, Citizenship and Immigration Canada has also indicated that the Ministère will be consulted on future regulatory changes in order to ensure that competencies in Québec are respected. The announcement on February 11, 2014 does not affect the programs in Québec.

This maximum number of applications does not apply to you if:

  • You have an advanced intermediate level of French demonstrated by a standardized test.

Order of priority for processing applications

  • Your application can be submitted at any time if you have advanced intermediate knowledge of French demonstrated by a standardized test.

New Fee Schedule

  • Effective April 21, 2015, you must pay a fee of $15,000 for review of your application for a Certificat de séléction du Québec. Since this fee covers your entire file, family members will not be required to pay additional fees.

Spouses of candidates can obtain points for knowledge of oral French. Consequently, they are asked to provide the results of an evaluation test for oral comprehension and production only.

The investment of $800,000 CAN for a five year term is guaranteed by the Gouvernement du Québec. Brokers and trust companies offer the possibility of financing the investment. Revenues generated by the applicant’s investment will be used to finance two Québec business assistance programs, Business Assistance—Immigrant Investor Program and Programme d’aide à l’intégration des immigrants et des minorités visibles en emploi (job integration assistance program for immigrants and visible minorities) At the end of the five year term, the broker or trust company will, within 30 days, reimburse the applicant $800,000 CAN without interest.
