IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Authorities in Quebec will reopen the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program on Monday, Sept. 10.
What does the change mean? Applicants must (1) have net assets totaling at least 2 million Canadian dollars (about US$1.52 million) and (2) intend to reside in Quebec and commit to making an investment of at least CA$1.2 million. The program will remain open until March 15, 2019 or until 1,900 applications are received.
Background: The Government of Quebec announced changes to the QIIP in March, increasing both the net worth and investment thresholds to their current levels. Authorities subsequently announced that the intake period would begin Sept. 10.
BAL Analysis: While the changes raise the bar on who will be eligible for the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program, they may also make the program less competitive for applicants who are able to meet the new requirements. Interested applicants should begin compiling an application as soon as possible.
