Canada’s Immigrant Investor Program (IIP) attracts experienced business people to bring significant economic benefits to Canada. In order to keep pace with the changing global economy and keep Canada’s program competitive, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) had changed the program’s requirements and stopped accepting any applications under Federal Investor Category in June 2009.
Effective December 1, 2010, CIC will once again accept applications under the new Federal Investor Program.
Under the new program criteria, investor applicants will need to have a personal net worth of $1.6 million, up from $800,000 under the old criteria, and make an investment of $800,000, up from the previous requirement of $400,000.
