Stuart Investments

The province of Quebec, and Canada at large are experiencing a demographic shift. By 2018, when its aging population of entrepreneurs retires, the province will face a deficit of more than 25,000 entrepreneurs. In Canada, over 120,000 businesses will need to transfer know-how and leadership or be sold.

To address this issue, the federal and provincial governments have adopted incentive programs to encourage entrepreneurial spirit and foreign investment.

At Stuart, we share the same focus and offer foreign investors opportunities in investing in Canadian businesses that fits their objectives, while meeting their family resettlement needs in Canada.
