REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS: INVESTOR
You must have a minimum net worth of CDN $800,000, derived from
legal economic activities. Net worth means the fair market price
of all the assets of the investor and of his or her spouse or
common-law spouse, less the fair market price of all their liabilities
You must also have 3 years of experience in management (planning,
management and control of human, material and financial resources)
acquired within a profitable and legal company (agricultural,
industrial or commercial), a government or an international organisation.
You must agree to invest at least CDN $400,000 for 5 years, by
signing an agreement with a Canadian financial intermediary.
This amount will be invested with Investissement-Québec
or with one of its affiliates to finance an assistance programme
for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) in Quebec or in Canada.
You will thus be making a contribution to the Canadian economy.
You may also borrow that amount from a Canadian bank. The sum
of CDN $400,000 will be paid to the government in your name, and
you will pay the bank the borrowing fee, which is set at CDN $120,000.
