    That's great. Your timeline is still shorter than the processing time. Congrats again! Hope all COPR holders get to land in Canada soon. They should be considered essential too.

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Hi, my husband is a film director. However, I am the principal applicant. In our application, I included his credentials as well. Although he did have certificates from film school, I think what you can submit is your engineering diploma and then just explain in your proof of relevant experience...

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Technically you need the required funds at the time you apply. But if you don't have all of it yet, you can definitely work for it and save up between the time you submit your application and the time they ask you for proof of funds, which will come later. No need to submit POF with your...

    Not sure about the process taking longer if you're from India. But I would advise you to apply as soon as you can, as the IRCC can reduce the processing time as quickly as they increased it.

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    That happened to me too. Tried for a couple of days but all my cards kept getting declined. Found out that the cards all had a credit limit. In the end, I had to ask my brother-in-law (who is based in the US) for his credit card details just to be able to pay the application fee. The payment...

    Wow. Congrats! My husband's dream is to be a luthier. He's a hobbyist woodworker. But his NOC is 5131 (TV and motion picture director). Mine is 5135 (voice over artist). This is really inspiring for artists like us who applied in this stream. Thanks for sharing!

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    Frustrating, but there is a pandemic so I was kind of expecting that. Also, a few years ago the processing time for Self-Employed was 7 years so still I count myself lucky to have applied only last year. Will just use the extra time to double up on work and save up, and further hone any skills I...
