Canada: A new home for self-employed workers, musicians, artists and athletes

Canada’s Federal Self-Employed Persons Program allows eligible individuals who have experience in athletics, arts and culture to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) assesses candidates for the program based on their experience, intent and ability to create their own employment in Canada.

Candidates must demonstrate that they have at least two years of relevant experience, either by taking part in “cultural or sporting activities at an international level”, which means that they are internationally known or perform at the highest level in their discipline or by being self-employed in the field of cultural or sporting activities.
