- have successfully operated a business;
- hold at least CAN $ 800,000 net worth legally acquired;
- make an investment of at least CAN $ 400,000;
- the investor is not required to carry out a business in Canada
The amount invested will be administered by Immigration Canada and will be used to create jobs and develop the Canadian economy.
