The Canada Business Immigration Category of visas was designed to attract experienced business people to Canada. Successful candidates are those who can invest in Canada, start businesses in Canada and generate revenues and employment for Canadians.
The Canadian Immigrant Investor Venture Capital Visa Program started on 1 December 2010, but is not always available. The category is opened only when Canada's immigration department – Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) - deems that Canada is in need of foreign investors, and is closed once those needs have been met.

Immigrant Investor Venture Capital Fund
Applicants must invest at least $2 million
CND into Canada's Immigrant Investor Venture Capital Fund for around 15 years
to be eligible for this visa. These investments are 'at-risk', meaning there is
no guaranteed return.
However, unlike the previous rules for this visa, investors do now receive interest on their investment throughout the investment term – rather than only once the term has expired.
