- Financing options: Available
The Government of Canada and the Government of Quebec, the country’s largest province, have developed programs to help entrepreneurs from other parts of the world become Canadian citizens.
At the core of the programs is an investment in a 5-year interest-free government-guaranteed note. Once the government processes your application and confirms receipt of your investment, a visa is issued allowing you and your family to live, work and travel anywhere in Canada. At the end of the five-year investment period, your full capital is returned. After a required period of residency in Canada, you become eligible for full Canadian citizenship.
Financing Options for Our Clients – Many potential immigrants, though able to meet the Program’s net worth criteria, may have difficulty raising the required investment in a short period of time. Others may own or operate profitable businesses and wish to avoid taking capital from these operations. And in some cases a lump sum payment may be preferable. For these reasons, we offer two different financing options.
1) Full Cash Option
The client deposits the full investment required which is then invested for five years without interest.
2) Financing Option
The immigrant investor deposits an amount under the Immigrant Investor Program, borrows the remainder from NBF and has nothing to pay back at the end of the term. No monthly payments are required over the term of the loan. Since interest rates fluctuate, please consult our representative Maggie Ozen about the current walk-away price.
