世界上除了巴黎,还有加拿大魁北克啊

The Province of Quebec offers a variety of advantages: great quality of life, quality universal education and health care systems, a vibrant and diversified economy, a mix of cultures where newcomers can feel at home. It also offers an efficient and accessible immigration program for investors that is not affected by the moratorium on the Federal Immigrant Investor Program.

 

On April 1st 2017, new rules were adopted regarding applications for a Quebec Selection Certificate under the Investor Program.  They limit the number of applications to 1900 including 1330 for Chinese applicants.  However, applicants who demonstrate, by means of a test recognized by the Quebec immigration authorities, that they have an advanced intermediate knowledge of French, are not subject to this maximum limit of applications.

 

The intake dates for applications submitted under the Investor Program are assumed to be from May 29th 2017 until maximum quota is met, or February 23rd, 2018 at the latest. Applicants who can demonstrate an advanced intermediate knowledge of French can assume to submit their file anytime until March 31st 2018.

 

In order to qualify you must:

1. Have a minimum net worth of $1,600,000 obtained legally, alone or with your accompanying spouse;

2. Have at least two (2) years of management experience* in the last 5 years;

Management Experience may have been acquired in a legal farming, commercial or industrial business, or in a legal professional business where the staff, excluding the investor, occupies at least the equivalent of two full-time jobs, or for an international agency or a government or one of its departments or agencies.

 

The Investor must have at least two years of experience within the last five years in duties related to the planning, management and control of financial resources and of human or material resources. The experience does not include experience acquired in the context of an apprenticeship, training or specialization process attested to by a diploma.

3. Intend to settle in Quebec and sign an agreement to invest $800,000 with a broker or trust company authorized to participate in the Investor Program.

Once selected by the Province of Quebec, you may apply to the federal immigration authorities for a permanent resident visa, which will be issued if you pass a medical exam and criminal background check.

When it comes to quality of life, best countries where to raise a child, best country where to live and work, safest country, best financial system, Canada stands in the top five year after year. No wonder Canada regularly has 3 cities in the top 10 best cities to live worldwide.

In 1986, Canada was one of the first countries to launch what has become today a global trend: permanent residency by investment. The province of Quebec was able to launch its own Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP) the same year, under an agreement with the federal government which grants the province jurisdiction to select immigrants, while the federal government retains jurisdiction to grant permanent residence in Canada.  Although the federal program closed in 2014, the province of Quebec still continues with its QIIP.

 

The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP):

The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program is a two-step process: Applicants apply for a Certificate of Selection from the Province of Quebec, and then proceed to Federal government for medical and police clearance before getting the Canada permanent residence.  They have to meet the following requirement:

  • have a net worth of at least 2,000,000 CAD, obtained legally;

  • have at least two years of management experience acquired in the 5 years preceding their application;

  • intend to settle in Quebec and sign an agreement to make a passive investment of 1.2M CAD with a financial intermediary authorized by the Quebec Government.

 

Once selected by Quebec, applicants are asked to transfer the investment funds, following which they are issued a Selection Certificate.  The investment is guaranteed by the Quebec government, and full amount will be reimbursed, interest free, at the end of 5 years.  Financing options are available to investors and obviously, this has an impact on the amount of funds to be reimbursed: “The possibility to make the investment after being selected, the Government guarantee on the investment, and the possibility to finance this investment at a fraction of the 1.2Mil are three (3) huge advantages over similar programs, such as the US EB5”, says Julien Tétrault, President of JTH Lawyers Inc, CITINAVI global partner

Then begins the second step of the process: applying to the Canadian federal immigration authorities for permanent residence in Canada.  Permanent residence will be granted if the applicants meet the health and safety requirements of Canada.  In recent years, the government of Canada has been under pressure to review the conditions related to medical inadmissibility. This resulted in a reform announced last May 2018 that will make it easier for people to be admissible under Canada’s health regulations, including people whose medical condition is managed primarily with prescription drugs.

The Canadian government has also made some changes to the definition of dependent children, thereby including children who are less than 22 years old and are neither married nor in a common law relationship. They do not have to be students. Children over 22 are admissible only if they have depended primarily on their parents’ financial support since before the age of 22 because of a physical or mental condition.

Since 1986, tens of thousands of families from all over the world have chosen the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program to become permanent residents of Canada, a pathway towards Canadian citizenship. Quebec is an Algonquin word meaning “where the river narrows”.  The province has several national parks and a multitude of outdoor activities all year round.  But it is also a bustling province offering a safe environment, a great education system, public medical insurance, striving diversified economy as well as a rich and diverse cultural life with clothes, music, literature, theatre, food – Quebecers’ favourite! – from across the globe.

Interested investors can participate in a free 3hr session with Investissement Quebec to learn more about Quebec, its education system (free until college, then heavily subsidized), universal health care system, economy, real estate, tax, etc.

For the 5th year, Quebec has maintained a quota system limiting the intake of new applications to 1,900 per year, including a maximum of 65% for Chinese applicants. “The quota system was imposed to curb the high demand for this program, but it also has increased the quality of files that are now being submitted. I am honoured that thanks to our 15+ years experience in QIIP, several Canadian financial institutions have asked us to select the best possible files to fill their quotas”, says Julien Tétrault.

 

The QIIP is the only passive investment program in Canada.   Other provinces have immigration programs aimed at attracting business men and women but they require active participation in the daily management of a business located in the province, whether it be an existing business acquired in whole or in part, or a new business created.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP):

For instance, the Manitoba Business Investor Stream wishes to attract qualified international business investors and entrepreneurs. Candidates submit an initial Expression of Interest explaining their background, their abilities and their plans.  There are two options: (1) the Entrepreneur Pathway for people who wish to open a business or invest in an existing business in Manitoba; (2) the Farm Investor Pathway for people interested in operating a farm in rural Manitoba.

In both cases, the investors will sign a Business Performance Agreement stating the conditions they have to meet within the first two years of their arrival in Canada. They will receive a temporary work permit, and once the conditions of the Business Performance Agreement have been met – within 6 to 18 month –, they will be nominated for permanent residence in Canada.

移民,是很多人的梦想,也确实可以开拓人生,实现人活一世的更多可能。此前,我们为大家介绍了移民的基本知识,以及瑞士、比利时、加勒比岛国等很多地方的移民计划,今天我们继续介绍移民热点,或者说最热点——加拿大魁北克。

 

移民的方式其实有不少,但最主要的就是归化移民和投资移民。前者,一般需要当事人到当地居住一段时间,符合当地法律所规定的条件,然后可以申请入籍,这按国家不同通常需要3年至10年。后者,需要在当地投资一定数额的不动产等,当然也有其它投资形式。对此,每个国家的具体方案有所不同。

 

比如我们在8月6日的文章中介绍过,东加勒比海背风群岛北部的英联邦成员国圣基茨和尼维斯,向当地公益机构圣基茨和尼维斯糖业发展基金会捐款25万美金,或投资40万美金以上的房地产,就可以申请移民。

移民并不仅仅意味着一本护照,而是寄托着对更广阔世界的向往。ONSAEMI海外投资移民公司不仅可以帮助客户获得法国、英国、比利时、荷兰、卢森堡、瑞士、西班牙、葡萄牙、摩纳哥、安道尔、奥地利、德国等欧洲国家的签证,到当地居住和生活,也可以通过不同渠道直接移民塞浦路斯、马耳他以及加勒比群岛。

 

不过,话说回来,谈到移民,可能很多人脑海中首先浮现出来的国家就是——加拿大。

没错,对于中国人来说,枫叶国加拿大是全世界最炙手可热的移民地,没有之一。在加拿大首都渥太华以及温哥华、多伦多等大城市,一口中文简直可以畅行无阻,看看历届香港小姐和电视剧女明星有多少来自加拿大就可见一斑了。

 

加拿大是世界上拥有最高生活品质、社会最富裕、经济最发达、福利最优厚的国家之一,但由于幅员辽阔,国家的经济建设需要吸引外来投资,所以政府力推投资移民计划。

谈到加拿大移民,除了温哥华等地,也千万不要忘记魁北克(Québec)。尤其对于通晓法语、有法国生活背景的人们,法语区魁北克才是移民的不二选择。ONSAEMI海外投资移民公司的合作伙伴Madeville & Associates,从1996年起从事魁北克移民工作,总部位于香港,在北京、上海、新加坡都有机构,对关于魁北克移民的一切再了解不过。其团队里包括专业的移民咨询顾问、律师、多语言服务人员,如果您有移民方面的疑问不妨直接垂询:

 

 

香港:

9/F Winsome House 71-73 Wyndham Street Central District, Hong Kong

北京:

15/F Yintai Office Tower C Beijing Yintai Centre No 2 Jianguomenwai Ave Beijing, P.R. China, 100022

新加坡:

34th Floor, 77 Robinson 77 Robinson Road Tanjong Pagar Singapore, 068896

加拿大投资移民的框架下,申请人一旦获得永久居留权,随行家人都可以申请,并在符合条件的情况下成功移民。

 

自从2015年1月,美国的“外国纳税计算法案”被激活,很多美国人民为了逃避沉重的税负,开始寻求到隔壁的加拿大生活。加拿大移民进一步热火起来。当然,奥地利、英国、新加坡、圣基茨和尼维斯、瑞士等国,也颇受富翁们青睐。

 

好吧,不离题,我们今天主要说说加拿大的魁北克省。

魁北克最大的城市、同时也是加拿大第二大城市蒙特利尔(Montréal),是巴黎之外的世界第二大法语城市,对比鲜明的多样风格在此完美融合,来自世界各地的多彩文化在此融汇贯通。蒙特利尔有多种风味的美食、独特的建筑古迹、激情四射的人文活力。城中建有30个博物馆,众多电影院和剧院为人们提供了丰富的娱乐方式,酒吧、咖啡馆、俱乐部一直营业到凌晨,高级购物中心也是这座时尚之都无须赘言的亮点。

 

“蒙特利尔”一词来源于中古法语“Mont Royal”,意为“皇家山”,至今蒙特利尔城中心的地标皇家山仍以此命名。站在皇家山上,整个城市风貌尽收眼底。

有“小巴黎”之称的蒙特利尔,大餐以正宗的法国菜为主,但也不乏加拿大其它地区乃至世界各地的美食,越南粉、意大利比萨和英式牛排等都可品尝到。熏肉、百吉饼是蒙特利尔著名的特色小吃,不同口味的奶酪和巧克力糖则是逛街的最佳小食。

蒙特利尔唐人街是名副其实的中国城。四座古典的中华彩绘牌楼,有如东西南北四座城门,环抱之下自成世界。这里有华人的教堂庙宇和医院药房,可以采购到几乎所有您想要的中国商品和华文书报。

魁北克的省会魁北克城(Ville de Québec),则曾是法兰西文明的发源地,现在是忙碌的港口、重要的文化交流中心。在这里,有卓越的艺术作品、可口的美味佳肴、宜人的公园美景、精彩的户外运动,以及当地人引以为傲的高品质生活。圣劳伦斯湖畔的迷人景色、无比珍贵的建筑遗迹、丰富多彩的历史文化,魁北克人热情快乐的生活......城中的一切都令人愉悦,而这愉悦已经持续了400年。

 

魁北克城的旧城区仍保有18世纪法国城市风貌,散发着浓厚的欧洲中世纪风格,店员们身着古装、梳古老发型,使整个市区洋溢着古色古香的情调。魁北克城被联合国教科文组织评为世界级的古迹保存地。

魁北克在北美处于得天独厚的位置,位于加拿大东部,西接安大略省和哈德逊湾,东邻大西洋诸省,南部与美国接壤,北部直抵北冰洋。当地拥有一条连接美国东北部主要大城市的便捷公路,从蒙特利尔到加拿大和美国边境仅需45分钟;拥有多个国际机场,从蒙特利尔乘飞机到纽约仅需1小时12分钟,到迈阿密仅需3小时25分钟,到洛杉矶仅需5小时45分钟;当地拥有连接加拿大和美国各个地区的完善铁路交通网,以及全年通航的蒙特利尔港口。

 

对于商业人士,魁北克更可谓天堂一般的存在,这里可接通一个拥有4.8亿消费者的北美市场。现有的众多贸易协定,比如北美自由贸易协定(NAFTA)、欧盟-加拿大自由贸易协定(CETA)、加拿大韩国自由贸易协定(CKFTA)等,都已将贸易壁垒消除,这为在魁北克落户的企业开展贸易提供了很多便利。

申请魁北克投资移民,要具备以下条件:

  • 申请者或与随行配偶,拥有合法积累的净资产160万加币以上;

  • 拥有至少两年的经商管理经验;

  • 与当地经政府授权的基金公司或信托公司签订金额为80万加币的投资协议;

  • 通过体检和无犯罪记录。

 

此外,投资者可以为自己、配偶及受抚养的子女申请。受抚养的子女,指年龄在19周岁以下的子女。若子女年龄已达19周岁或以上,但19周岁以前由于身体或精神原因,导致经济不能自立,大部份靠父母财务支持的例外。年龄计算时间,以魁北克政府接受申请的日期为准。
