As the title says, would it be helpful for a low population country like Canada to get financial aid in the form of Investment in return for PR?
Canada used to have such a programme but it was abolished in 2014. Quebec still has one.
Almost every country in the world is suffering from economic recession because of the pandemic, people are losing jobs, poverty is on the rise in many countries too etc... Immigrant Investor visas, also known as golden visas, are used by countries predominantly to make a countries economy flourish or at least save it from a recession (US introduced it in 1990 and Greece, Portugal etc.. introduced it around 2010-12 when they suffered from economic recessions). Golden visas are offered to wealthy people in return for Cash/Investment, that directly boosts a countries economy.
But Canada, a country that isn't really resistant to recessions like some other wealthy and powerful countries are, and a country that desperately needs immigrants too, already abolished such a scheme in 2014.
Is there actually any benefit in saving Canada's economy (so many countries' economies have been destroyed by the pandemic) by relaunching such a scheme? Can such schemes help in partly reviving economy of Canada in a post-covid world (say next year or so)?
If there is a benefit to save Canada's economy, can you say how it could actually help the country from fighting recession?
You can easily find on the internet that all countries (mainly European and Carribean) are all set to take advantage of the pandemic to grow investor immigration and have also reportedly halved the required investment amounts (example Italy).
