Do you have extensive work experience in culture or athletics? EXITUS IMMIGRATION SERVICES can help you turn that experience into permanent residency

Canada is seeking many immigrants with skills and talent in arts, culture, recreation, and sports. The Self-Employed class gives such immigrants a path to permanent residency, but there are high eligibility requirements that must be met in order to be admitted under this category.

You must demonstrate that you will make significant contributions to Canadian culture or athletics, and you will need to demonstrate not only your past talent and skills, but your future plans in Canada

Who is Eligible for the Self-Employed Stream?

The eligible work experience is described as “Occupations in art, culture, recreation and sport” These can range from dancing, writing, painting, and sports, to more technical occupations, such as film industry, video/audio technicians, and TV announcers.

You must be able to prove that they have the ability and the willingness to be self-employed in one of these occupations.

You must also demonstrate 2 years of related work experience in the last 5 years before applying.

Point System

Immigration Canada uses a 100 – point scale to measure eligibility for the program. In order to qualify, you must score at least 35 points or above.

The scale measures points for the following:

  • Age (21 – 49 years for a maximum of 10 points)
  • English/French Language skills (maximum 24 points)
  • Experience (up to 5 years for a maximum of 35 points)
  • Education (Masters or Doctorate and 17 years full-time study for a maximum of 25 points)
  • Adaptability (maximum 6 points).
