Self Employed Programs

If you’re a professional athlete, artisan or farmer, and you’d like to settle in any of the territories or provinces in Canada, you may be eligible for a business immigrant visa which covers you and your immediate family.

    The Federal Self-Employed Persons Programs assess the application of business immigrants with a point-based grading system. The applicants are also required to have two years’ work experience in their chosen field to prove they can flourish as self-employed persons in all the Canadian provinces except Quebec.

    • Candidates are selected according to their scores in each category, their accompanying documents and their ability to meet the Canadian standard of a self-employed person.
  • Quebec Self Employed Program

    Under the Quebec Self-Employed program which is similar to the one at the Federal level, applicants must prove that they can be successfully self-employed in their chosen industry. Applicants under this program are required to have a minimum of $100,000 as net worth, and be ready to live in Quebec.

    With the Quebec Self-Employed worker Program, a designated set of self-employed people can migrate to Quebec to create their own job. Before an applicant can qualify for this particular program, the applicant’s net assets must not be less than $100,000 CAD and they must provide proof of being self-employed in their chosen field for two years.

    The Quebec Self-Employed Worker Program can be described as an immigration pathway designed for newcomers who have experience in creating their own jobs. Successful applicants can migrate to Quebec to create jobs for themselves by practising their chosen profession or trade.

    Just like all the other Quebec immigration pathways, applicants under this program were allowed to apply for their certificat de sélection du Québec i.e. CSQ – Québec selection certificate. After receiving their CSQ, the applicants become automatically eligible to apply for Canadian permanent residency.

    Requirements for the Quebec for Self Employed Program

    • Come to Quebec with the intention of creating their own job through a trade or profession of their choice.
    • Have a minimum of legally obtained $100,000 CAD as net assets, when applicable, a common-law partner or accompanying spouse.

    • Other factors like language proficiency and training background age, will also be considered.

    Quebec Self-Employed Worker Points Assessment Grid

    Candidates under the Quebec Self-Employed Worker program are required to have the maximum points required on the grid below. Note also that the Quebec province reserves the right to alter the points grid whenever they so desire.

    The applicants applying under the Federal Self-Employed Program can settle in any Canadian territory or province except Quebec since they have their own version of the self-employed immigration program.
