Copy of Reopening the Immigrant Investor Venture Program
An innovative investor program that will bring economic benefits to Canada
May 23, 2015 — Ottawa —The Government of Canada continues to test demand for the Immigrant Investor Venture Capital (IIVC) Pilot Program—a program which will ensure that immigrants who come to Canada deliver meaningful benefits to our economy and society. The program is reopening from May 25 to December 30, 2015.
The IIVC Pilot Program targets high investments and immigrants with skills and abilities, with the objective of stimulating Canada’s economy and promoting growth. The investments made through this pilot will be used to fund innovative Canadian start-ups with high growth potential.
Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to schedule a language test and to get their foreign educational credentials assessed by a designated organization, if required, as soon as possible to ensure that they are able to submit their application before the program closes.
