Immigrate to Canada Through The Federal Self-Employed Program

May 9, 2019

While the Express Entry system is the most popular pathway for non-business applicants to apply for permanent residence in Canada, the program can be relatively challenging for many candidates who are unable to achieve a satisfying score on the CRS ranking system due to their age, language ability or other selection criteria.

 

Highlights

 

Applicants who have relevant experience in cultural or athletic activities may be eligible to apply under the Federal Self-Employed program instead. Successful candidates will essentially have to demonstrate their desire and ability to contribute to cultural or athletic life in Canada, in addition to other selection factors. Examples of qualifying occupations under the self-employed stream are:

  • Authors and writers
  • Musicians, singers, and actors
  • Translators and journalists
  • Interior designers
  • Graphic designers
  • Athletes and coaches
  • Photographers, film producers and directors

Please check here for a full list of qualifying occupations and contact me if you think you would be a good fit for the program.
