The Self-Employed Persons Program is aimed at those who have relevant experience in cultural activities, athletics or farm management. Applicants must also have the intention and ability to establish a business that will, at a minimum, create employment for themselves. Applicants must also make a significant contribution to cultural activities or athletics or purchase and manage a farm in Canada. The Canada Self-Employed Persons Program is available to new immigrants through CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada). With a wide range of occupational streams, this is a program designed to bring new immigrants to Canada who plans to be self-employed. Amongst the many admissibility requirements, there are some fundamental pre-requisites that will pertain to all applicants.
Artists, freelance writers, music teachers, dancers, artists, video recorders, illustrators, film makers, journalists, designers, choreographers, teachers, coaches, set designers, theatrical/musical directors, and farmers.
Self employed people applying through this program are not imposed with any immigration conditions. After your application is approved for permanent residency, the government of Canada expects you to have enough money to support yourself and your immediate family members.
You are also expected to add value to the country as whole by channelizing your talent in such a way that maximum amount of people can take benefit from it. For example if you have migrated as a certified trainer, you can join a training firm as an outside consultant and can advise it on their training need analysis. A self-employed person does not need any minimum investment and the capital required depends on the nature of work.
The application guidelines and immigration criteria for Canada self-employed persons program will make a significant contribution in their particular field of endeavor. As such, CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) does not formally define the term significant contribution. However, immigration officers will use personal judgment to assess the merits of each immigrant application. For instance, a significant contribution to athletics or culture may be considered significant, even if it is somewhat less than a nationally recognized standard.
