Investment Minimum: The minimum investment for CanAm Enterprises projects is $800,000.
Fees: Fees that cover administrative costs, marketing, and legal expenses associated with each unit of investment are $60,000. This does not include attorney fees associated with the preparation and submission of the petition assumed by each individual investor.
Investment Structure: CanAm Enterprises project loans are formed under a Limited Partnership of EB-5 investors to a company creating new jobs in the United States.
Investment Term: The average term of the investment is five years.
Investment Location: The location of our projects varies, depending on the location of the Regional Center and the respective Targeted Employment Area(s).
Job Creation: The total amount of jobs created varies from project to project, depending on the size of the loan and the scope of the project. The required number of jobs needed for each investment also varies depending on the economic model used to determine the amount of indirect jobs that will be created. Generally, as a conservative precaution to ensure USCIS approval, CanAm requires that projects not only meet the minimum job requirements, but also exceed them. In most cases, generally more than ten jobs per investor are created for each project.
Interest Income: Interest income for the Partnership is the interest payments made by the Borrower. After administrative and monitoring costs are paid, investors receive nominal interest depending on the interest rate which is negotiated based on prevailing key federal loan interest rates. Interest is paid on an annual basis. Exit Strategy: The investment structure for all Limited Partnerships is, on average, a full five-year term. Within two to three years, investors learn the status of their permanent green card application. Once the conditional green card has been approved, investors may no longer withdraw. Once the minimum five-year term has elapsed, investors may leave the Partnership.

There are specific risk factors for each Limited Partnership, which are specifically addressed and described in detail in the offering materials for each Limited Partnership. While risk factors differ for each Partnership, general risks include economic conditions, failure to meet job requirements, and denied immigration status under the EB-5 Program. Learn more about Limited Partnerships on our Frequently Asked Questions.
In the U.S., an individual is considered to be an accredited investor if he or she has a net worth in excess of $1 million (excluding the value of the primary residence), or has income exceeding $200,000 each year for the last two years ($300,000 with spouse if married) and has reasonable expectation to earn the same amount in the current year and beyond.
