The Canada Immigrant Investor Program is essentially focused on encouraging the culture of entrepreneurship in Canada in the form of new businesses or Start-ups. It offers a direct pathway to Permanent Residency for qualifying entrepreneurs who are chosen by government-designated organizations to be supported for their business. The most unique feature of this program is that, it enables the entrepreneurs to retain their Permanent Residency irrespective of success or failure of the business. Even if their Canadian business is unsuccessful, individuals granted Permanent Residency through this program can still retain their Permanent Residency status.
