Goals of the self-employed program
The Government of Canada is highly interested in attracting self-employed persons from around the world. The main criterion is that these persons must have the intention and ability to create their own employment as artists, farmers, interpreters or athletes among others, and are expected to contribute to the culture and athletic life of Canada.
As a result, self-employed persons, such as music teachers, painters, illustrators, film-makers, freelance journalists, choreographers, set designers, coaches and trainers, theatrical or musical directors, impresarios are welcomed to come to Canada as self-employed persons.
There are many factors that the decision-making immigration officer is considering while reviewing your immigration case/application. Among these factors are your self-employed experience and your chances to adapt to Canadian business and social life, while establishing your own employment.
The decision-making officer has significant discretion over the self-employed applications, even if your eligibility assessment is somewhat discouraging. The decision-making officer will have to review your background holistically in order to decide whether your case is persuasive enough and whether your case demonstrates enough intent to settle in Canada as self-employed.
