Unlike the Entrepreneur’s Visa Program, there is no net-worth requirement, allowing you the freedom to start your Canadian business on your own terms. To qualify, you must have at least two years of relevant experience in your field, and your application will be assessed based upon your education, age, language proficiency, and adaptability (ease of assimilating into Canadian society). You need to score at least 35 points on a selection grid designed to determine whether you will be able to make an economic contribution to Canada.

If you are looking to establish, invest in, or acquire a business in Canada, the immigration lawyers at Pax Law are here to help. We can advise you on the best strategy under the Self-Employed Program, and will ensure that your visa documentation is perfect, submitted correctly and on time.
