National Bank Financial
Integrity, Experience, Service
National Bank Financial is the most respected and, most senior financial intermediary involved in Canada’s Immigrant Investor Program, and a government-approved facilitator.
We have been in the business of helping entrepreneurs and their families put down financial roots in Canada since the first program was introduced in 1986. In fact, we collaborated with the government in its creation. We have served more immigrant investors, over a longer period of time, than any other firm, by far. With our network of certified agents and an office staffed with knowledgeable advisors speaking many languages, our clients can be assured of getting the professional help they need at every stage of the decision-making process.

Founder, Immigrant Investor Program
Senior Vice-President, National Bank of Canada
In 1986, Louis Leblanc, a seasoned trader on the floor of the Montreal Stock Exchange with a degree in Economics from McGill University, joined with a team of government experts to create a program designed to bring entrepreneurs from other parts of the world to Quebec, Canada’s largest province.
This program proved so successful that it was emulated and expanded by the Government of Canada, and has become a model for similar programs around the world.
Over the more than 20 years since the program was introduced, Mr. Leblanc has earned an unequalled reputation for efficacy and integrity, and has helped close to 7,000 investor families settle in Canada and become Canadian citizens.
Operating and enhancing the program, with the backing of an exceptional team of highly trained professionals, is his principal occupation. Mr. Leblanc travels widely to serve clients, and maintains active ties with a global network of mandataries.
