Candidates will also need to get due attentiveness report indicating that they acquired a net worth as a minimum of $10 million from legalized, profitable business activities.

The minister for Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), Chris Alexander, has said that with the start-up of this pilot program, Canada is alluring investors who could make a considerable investment and holds the education and confirmed experience in business or investment needed to attain triumph in Canada.
