South Africans moving to Canada as Investors under the New Quebec Investor Program with increased requirements in 2018
Many South Africa wealthy Business owners and High Net Worth Employed Managers have discoved a very discreet solution for moving to Canada without all the restrictions of age, education and language proficiency requirements. The number of applicants has increased by 25% each year since 2010,but still with very small numbers compared to other countries that saw massive demand for Canadian Investor Immigration under the Quebec Investor Program. The influx maybe in part due to VIP business immigration, the largest Canadian investor immigration law partnership between immigration consultants, lawyers and Quebec financial intermediaries for the Quebec Investor Program providing immigration services. The Quebec Investor Program of 2018 which will start in September is drawing a lot of attention from potential investors from all of South Africa interested in immigrating to Canada for its security, quality of life, Low Business Taxes, best access to Free Trade Agreements Worldwide and much more.
Over the last few years, more than 200 South Africans have moved to Canada as Quebec Investor Selected Immigrant. It is expected that with the new requirement such as having a Net worth of 2.0M Canadian or 18M ZAR, demand from South Africans will not decrease as the program gets out .. no age limit is the key factor.
Over the span of the last few years, Canada has welcomed the highest levels of immigrants in more than 100 years, this is a huge indication that the new policies established by the Government and the favorable condition for immigrants to settle in Canada are having the right impact. Economists believe that the increase of interest from the investors has increased tremendously this year after introduction of The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP) 2018, which is the only Canadian Business Immigration Program that put no restrictions on age, language or diploma requirements, and places no requirements to start, buy or manage a company in Canada as it is a Passive Investment Immigration Visa. This is especially important because it gives potential investors the freedom for the future and possibility to sell their current company at the right moment for the right price before moving to Canada as a passive Immigrant Investor under the Canada Citizenship by investment Visa and Canada and Quebec in particular have a rich culture and history of successful integration of cultures, which is further enhanced by the different people from different countries, cultures, religions and ethnicity that now call Quebec home and with no distinctions on opportunities for the future. Canadian Ministers are black Africans, Indians, French, Irish, Native Americans….
Canada’s natural and architectural beauty has been drawing in tourists from around the world, it is natural that many of them would love to be a part of Canada’s prosperity and economic growth, and Canada seems to be welcoming them warmly.Canada is the new country of freedom an opportunity and has replaced the USA many years ago..

The post Residential developments sector in Johannesburg on the rise – Investors set to return to Gauteng appeared first on The Johannesburg Times.
It has been observed over the last 12-18 months or so that investors have been moving their attention to coastal regions such as the Atlantic Seaboard and the KwaZulu-Natal coastal regions, says Peet Strauss of Pam Golding Properties’ Johannesburg Developments.
“We, however, foresee something of a slowing down in this trend and a return of residential property investors to Gauteng, as it is recognised that the province is still the economic capital of South Africa and it remains the place to do business,” adds Strauss. “In addition, properties in the region have tended to remain more realistically priced thereby offering better returns on investment.”
“There is, furthermore, rapid growth across a number of centres within the province, and considerable investments are being made by the private sector in numerous retail, commercial and residential initiatives across the province and local governments are supporting these developments with infrastructure projects.”
According to Strauss, the result of this is clearly evident in booming centres such as Sandton, Rosebank, Midrand, Fourways, Menlyn in Pretoria as well as a number of others, including a renewed energy in the Johannesburg city centre. “It speaks to the great confidence of a wide spectrum of investors in many areas of the economy but also follows a natural migration occurring across Africa towards urbanisation.”
“Over the last three or fours years, there has been considerable take up of more affordable homes in the R450 000 to R1.3 million range. These buyers are reaching a more mature stage in which they are starting to look to buy up, which bodes well for the more upmarket range of development properties.”
Strauss says that a number of attractive new residential developments across greater Johannesburg are set to come on stream over the next 18 months to 20 months. “A large number of opportunities are opening up within the development field and any aspiring residential property investor should look to secure their off plan purchases, effectively fixing the purchase price but only taking ownership later.”
“As delivery in the residential sector slowed across the region in recent years, it enabled demand to catch up. As a consequence of this and coupled with a new crop of investor purchasers, we foresee exciting prospects for young up-and-coming developers going forward,” adds Strauss.
“There is renewed interest in the market and a range of residential developments have been, or are in the process of being, constructed. These have included smaller- to medium-scale developments, as well as number of large multi-million rand residential projects.”
“We believe it is an excellent time to invest. We are seeing some a number of well placed and well-priced apartments becoming available off-plan, for which no transfers fees are required, and which represent a sound long-term investment with solid rental returns.”
According to Strauss, the Pam Golding Properties’ Johannesburg Developments Division is reaching new levels of maturity and is partnering a number development projects across the region. One such venture is the residential component of Melrose Arch, where Pam Golding Properties has been active for some 13 years. One on Whiteley is another premier development at Melrose Arch where units are at present on sale off-plan and construction recently commenced.
There are a number of other larger projects in which Pam Golding Properties Developments is currently involved in including Park Central in Rosebank. This iconic development is set to raise the level of residential offering in Rosebank.
“Some developers are offering once-in-a-lifetime special deals in order to attract younger, less established buyers, who may struggle to afford a once-off deposit. At Park Central, for example, buyers are offered a special deal in which they are enabled to pay off the 10% deposit over 12-month period. Units at Park Central are priced from R1.8 million.”
There are a number of other schemes earmarked for Wierda Valley, Morningside, Bryanston, Houghton and Rosebank to name just a few. These include excellent buy-to-live as well as investment opportunities and include small- to medium-sized projects as well.
Complete development service – not just a sales team
“The Pam Golding Properties team has vast experience in providing consulting services to institutional-type developers on high-end iconic buildings to smaller developers who are looking to start out, from the concept stage of development all the way through to sales and marketing, including the appointment of project-specific sales executives,” Strauss notes.
Victoria Russell, Pam Golding Properties development division projects coordinator, adds that while the team is primarily focused on property sales and marketing, it has increasingly seen the need to become involved at an earlier stage within the property development process. This means that the team will provide guidance and insights long before the formal sales and marketing process begins.
“Rather than attempting to market a product after the fact, we are able to provide our guidance on client demand information during the product development process. Indeed, through our own highly experienced in-house team and a number of trusted strategic alliances, we are able to offer advice on all of the factors involved in the development,” notes Russell.
“From inception to final sale, the projects division is available to be engaged as a member of the professional team to research, advice and impart proprietary information, to ensure that a residential development is destined for success.”
“We are actively seeking development land and opportunities, so no matter whether you just want to sell your land, become involved as a joint venture or develop the land yourself, the Pam Golding Properties Developments team can provide advice and share its considerable expertise with you.”
Russell says that through its skilled and experienced management team, the division builds up and acquires expertise and forges relationships in all key areas of successful property development including: conceptualising a scheme, market research, revenue assessment to assist feasibility and viability studies, all aspects of marketing and sales, legal documentation and end-user finance.
