Canadian Program VS EB-5

Were you considering the Canadian investor visa program?

It was recently announced that Canada is halting their investor visa program. It is likely you are already aware of this information as your search of the Internet has led you to this site. Two investor visa programs have always stood out amongst all those programs from around the world. The Canadian program and the EB-5 Investor Visa program of the United States.

Most agencies which assisted individuals in obtaining permanent residency through the Canadian program always made the claim that there were vast differences between the Canadian program and the United Sates or U.S. Investor Visa program. This is not always the case, as a properly structured U.S. regional center EB-5 investment can deliver the immigration opportunity and likelihood for success that participants were looking for through the Canadian program. Recent news reports indicate that obtaining permanent residency in Canada may not have been the ultimate goal of investors in the Canadian program, as few immigrant investors were maintaining ties to Canada. Additionally, the Program dollar for dollar did not create the new jobs the U.S. program did.

Ultimately investors into the Canadian program were doomed to lose money, as many opted to pay the option rather to invest. In CMB, we have structured the investment that the likelihood of return of the capital is high.

Historically, the United States has been seen as the “Land of Opportunity” for immigrants around the world. The EB-5 investor visa program is seen as the quickest path to permanent residency/ US Green Card. The US program does have requirements such as the creation of new American jobs and that the investment be an ‘at risk’ investment. A properly structured EB-5 investment should be able to clearly demonstrate meeting USCIS requirements, provide relative safety to the original capital and provide the immigrant investor with the opportunity for U.S. permanent residency.

For those investors who were seeking the opportunity to immigrate to North America through the Canadian program we invite you to ask questions of us about how the United States EB-5 Investor Visa program may be the answer to what you are seeking. There are thousands like you who have already utilized the US program and we would like to share that information with you with no obligation on you part.
