Self Employed Immigration Business Application

Attracting self employed business entrepreneurs to immigrate to Canada has always been part of Canada’s economic growth strategy. Canada offers various business applications for immigration to Canada. Self-Employed business individuals from foreign lands can immigrate to Canada to conduct business and become permanent residents by first initiating a self-employed business application. Citizenship and Immigration Canada has defined a self-employed foreign national as having relevant experience only in cultural activities, athletics, and farm management.
