On August 27, 2014, Immigration authorities in the Province of Quebec announced they will begin to accept new applications under its highly successful Quebec Immigrant Investor Program for a limited period starting January 2015.

This comes as welcome news for high net worth individuals looking for an attractive passive investment scheme offering Canadian permanent residence. With the recent closure of the Federal Immigrant Investor program, the Quebec program is the only program of its kind in Canada.

Quebec has the second largest economy and population among Canadian provinces, and its vibrant metropolis, Montreal, is the second largest city in Canada.

Under the announcement Quebec will accept a maximum of 1750 applications during a short window of time from January 19th to March 20th 2015. Interested applicants are accordingly encouraged to act early to increase their chances of having their application selected for processing.

The application quotas and the limited period of reception do not apply to applicants to the investor category who can demonstrate an intermediate to advanced level of French language proficiency.

To be eligible, applicants must demonstrate the following:
  • A legitimately acquired personal net worth of at least 1.6 million Canadian Dollars;
  • At least two years of senior managerial experience within the past five years in a private enterprise, eligible partnership, government body or NGO;
  • Commit to making an interest free investment of CAD $800,000.00 in a prescribed (government guaranteed) investment for a period of five years;
  • An intention to settle in the province of Quebec.

As of January 2015, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has a new electronic system called Express Entry to manage applications for permanent residence under certain economic immigration programs.

The Express Entry system is the first step to immigrate to Canada under these programs. Potential candidates can complete an Express Entry profile at any time. Note that there is no deadline to complete a profile and there are no caps on the number of candidates that will be accepted to the pool.

Anyone who is accepted into the Express Entry pool could get an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence. Rounds of invitations to invite candidates to apply will take place regularly over the course of each year. We will only pick the top ranking candidates no matter when they were accepted into the pool.

If you are invited to apply, you will have 60 days to submit a complete Application for Permanent Residence online.

The first round of invitations took place on the last week of January 2015.

It's a stunning site: Niagara Falls, the world's most famous waterfall, apparently frozen in place.

The icy spectacle, brought on by weeks of severe cold, has drawn a steady flow of intrepid tourists. But are the Falls really frozen? Not exactly. Here's a brief explanation of what really happens when the mighty Niagara River appears to form a crystalline cascade

Frequently Asked Questions

What is ICCRC, and what is it for?

ICCRC stands for Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council. ICCRC is a not-for-profit organization that regulates the practice of Immigration Consultants in Canada. Registered members of the ICCRC offer immigration services and advice for a fee. They can appear as a representative on behalf of their client with Citizenship and Immigration Canada, The Immigration and Refugee Board, or the Canada Border Service Agency.

Does it have to be somebody with "ICCRC" attached to their name who can help me in my Immigration application?

Only some people can charge a fee or receive any other type of payment to represent or advise you on a Canadian immigration proceeding or application. These are:

  • Immigration consultants (ICCRC) who are members in good standing of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council.
  • Lawyers and paralegals who are members in good standing of a Canadian provincial or territorial law society,
  • Notaries who are members in good standing of the Chambre des notaires du Québec

Anyone who gives you paid advice before you apply or start a proceeding must be authorized. Unauthorized people must either become authorized or refer you to someone who is. If you pay a representative, they must be authorized if they:

  • act on your behalf during an immigration proceeding by speaking for you,
  • help you choose the best immigration stream or
  • fill out any forms.

Is it possible for me to do my own immigration application processing? CIC claims the guides are self-explanatory, why should I hire a consultant?

You do not need to hire an immigration representative if you do to wish to. This is up to you. However, Immigration consultants are experts in their field. Immigration consultants provide services to individuals seeking help to navigate immigration issues in Canada. This may include obtaining advice or assistance with permanent residence applications, temporary residence and visa applications, or refugee claims.

Consultants ensure that documents and forms appropriately are handled appropriately. They will provide immigrants, hopeful visitors and habitants of Canada with help in properly submitting their applications and guide them through the various processes. Immigration Consultants provide valuable services to would-be users of the Canadian Immigration System. These are often persons residing in foreign countries who are hoping to come to Canada in some legal capacity or persons residing in Canada with unstable or unofficial status.

These individuals are often vulnerable, as they may:

  • Have limited ability to communicate in or understand written or spoken English or French
  • Have limited ability to understand Canadian immigration laws and the Canadian immigration system
  • Have limited understanding of the role of immigration consultants and their restrictions and/or abilities
  • Be under duress or in stressful situations, especially those applying for refugee status

I'm a permanent resident/citizen. Can I "sponsor" my friend/siblings/parent?

A PR or citizen who is 18 years old and above may sponsor his/her spouse, common law / conjugal partner, dependent children, parents and grandparents.

Can you help me find work in Canada?

No. Lifeline International is an Immigration Consulting Company and NOT a Recruitment Agency.

I'm an American citizen/permanent resident. Can I apply for Canadian citizenship/permanent residence?

Yes. Just like any other foreign national, you have to go through the immigration process.
