How can I qualify to immigrate to Canada as a self-employed person?

No new applications under the farm management stream

As of March 10, 2018, we’re no longer accepting new applications under the farm management stream of the Self-Employed Persons Program. We’ll continue to process applications received before March 10, 2018.

To qualify as a self-employed person, you must have two years of relevant experience and show that you intend to become self-employed in Canada.

You must also score at least 35 points on a selection grid designed to determine whether you will be able to make an economic contribution to Canada.
