Canadians have two main options to invest in U.S. based businesses in exchange for a visa or green card, these are the E-2 treaty trader visa or the EB-5 green card program. The E-2 visa allows Canadians to make an investment in a business enterprise. The business must be active, the investment must be substantial and at risk, and the investor must oversee and direct the day-to-day operations. The visa is valid for five years, and may be renewed indefinitely so long as the business continues to operate. The EB-5 investor green card program allows Canadians to invest $500,000 to $1 million in a business enterprise in exchange for a green card.
