The Investor visa seeks experienced business people to invest C$800,000 into Canada’s economy and become permanent residents. Investors must:
- show that they have business experience
- have a minimum net worth of C$1,600,000 that was obtained legally and
- make a C$800,000 investment.
To qualify as an investor, you must have two years of business experience and a net worth of at least C$1,600,000 that was obtained legally. You must also obtain a minimum of 35 points in a selection grid designed to determine whether you will be able to become economically established in Canada. Before a visa is issued, you must make an investment of C$800,000 to Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
