Investor - Venture Capital Pilot Program

This program is designed to international investors with the skills and abilities needed to contribute to Canada’s economy and integrate into Canadian society, investors may be eligible to apply for permanent residence under the Immigrant Investor Venture Capital (IIVC) Pilot Program.

Investors must have a personal net worth of CDN $10 million or more. The net worth must have been acquired through lawful, private sector business or investment activities.

Canada will require applicants whose applications can be considered for the second stage review to obtain a due diligence report at their expense from one of the following designated service providers:

  • BDO USA, LLP

  • Deloitte Forensic Inc.

  • EY

  • KPMG LLP

  • PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) LLP

  • Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Consulting Inc.

The due diligence report is an independent examination and validation of your past business or investment experience, source of funds and personal net worth.

The report will include the service provider’s opinion as to whether the investor wealth was acquired through lawful, private sector business or investment activities. Their report would also flag any potentially negative information for an IRCC officer to consider.
