Quebec Investor Program (QIIP) 2018
Introduced in 1986, the highly successful Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP) offers qualified high net worth individuals and families worldwide the opportunity to immigrate to Canada through the Province of Quebec.
The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program is open for new applications from May 29, 2017 until February 23, 2018. The program will only accept a maximum of 1900 applications during this limited intake period, so we strongly encourage you to act fast. maximum of 1330 applications will be accepted from China (including Hong Kong and Macao). This stipulation will make it easier for non-Chinese nationals to be selected for processing since heavy demand from China will not be able to cap the entire program as soon as the intake period begins.
