Canada Immigration - Self-Employed Person

The Self-Employed Persons Program is open to individuals with self-employed experience as farmers, athletes (at an international level), or artisans.

To qualify for business immigration to Canada under the Self-Employed Persons Program, an applicant must demonstrate that he or she has relevant agricultural, artistic, or athletic experience that will allow the applicant to be successfully self-employed in Canada and to make a significant contribution to his or her field.

Relevant experience consists of at least two years of experience either self-employed or participating at a world class level in art, culture, recreation, or sport activities designated by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) (see the list below).

Applicants who wish to purchase a farm must have at least two years of farm management experience.

Applicants are also assessed based on their education, experience, age, English/French language ability, and adaptability. 

Individuals interested in immigrating to the Province of Quebec should note that the province has a separate selection system for self-employed persons.
