How to obtain Canadian citizenship by investment

1 Preparation of documents

Our experts will help you to prepare documents with legalized translations and complete the required registration forms. You need to provide a proof of entrepreneurial experience, required income and financial savings, confirm compliance with medical criteria and the payment of application processing fees.

2 Receive a Selection Certificate

One of the steps towards the citizenship is to obtain government approval (a Selection Certificate) enabling you to arrange the investment. We will submit a full set of documents for consideration to the Direction de l'enregistrement et de l'évaluation comparative (DEÉC) in Montreal. Authorized experts will consider your candidacy, financial assets and intentions to live in Canada on a permanent basis.

3 Get a permanent residency

The Selection Certificate entitles you to apply for permanent residence permit to the Centralized Intake Office in Canada, which checks the results of the medical examination and conducts due diligence check. The final decision on the issuance of permanent residence is made by the government. Registration of a residence permit by investment takes 2-3 years.

4 Granting Citizenship

The opportunity to apply for citizenship appears after 5 years of residence in the country. A mandatory requirement is to reside in Canada during the last 3 years of the specified period. Documents will be considered during 1 year. After the approval, you will need to pass a test and an interview with an official representative. Applicants over the age of 54 are exempt from the test. Upon completion of additional procedures and receiving the approval, you need to take an oath of allegiance. The government will send the invitation 4 weeks before the appointed date.
