    Self-Employed Application 2018

    My lawyer said they base it off the Express Entry proof of funds, which for a family of 5 is $27,315? We are looking to land in Nova Scotia, so I'm hoping they'll take the cost of living there into consideration.

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    A large portion of the net worth is in a money market account/IRA....which we can access but it would be with a tax penalty. In my business narrative I explained that with the nature of my business, I would need very little funds to actually get the business up and running, as I already own the...

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    Could someone who has gotten through the process take a look at my funds/net worth and let me know if this looks ok or if I should be concerned? Net Worth: $292,673 (CAN) Landing Funds: $40,000 (CAN) I have a family of 5 and the guidelines for the self-employed stream seem so arbitrary, so I...

    Did they detail which documents were missing?

    You should have an opportunity to send the required documents that were missing, correct?

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    I decided to sign up for the IELTS despite likely having enough points for the Self Employed Stream. Figured it couldn't hurt. Anyone here take the IELTS and how did you find it difficulty-wise being a native English speaker? I'm going to study as much as I can, but are there any good sources...

    Fed. Self Employed: Business Funds to Support a Family of 5?

    Anyone here use/using this stream have a family with them (spouse and kids). What kind of yearly net funds are you showing derived from your business alone? The "enough to support your family" is so subjective.

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    For those of you who had a spouse and family when you applied, did they consider your spouse's employability at all as far as your fitness to support yourselves in Canada? Or, was it all hinged on your self-employed income?

    Self-Employed Application 2019

    Similar question: Anyone know how assessors/immigration people view IRAs/Money Market Accounts? These are not technically immediately liquid as we are under age 59 1/2, but they are able to be accessed (with taxes and penalties applied for early withdrawal). I know these are considered within...

    Yes but liquid funds is different than net worth. Do you happen to know what thread that was in though?

    Self-Employed Application 2019

    I think that might be just for the Quebec Self Employed stream, man. There's absolutely nothing of that sort of amount listed for the regular SE stream. Plus, I think my lawyer would have said something when I turned in my financials. Are you doing the Quebec stream? My lawyer said there are no...

    Self-Employed Application 2019

    My lawyer said they typically only require a positive net worth and the same required funding as Express Entry? Can anyone who has been through the process all the way through confirm this. I am so confused about what they're ultimately looking for us to show as far as finances. They want us to...

    Self-Employed Application 2019

    Holy Cow. $100,000 Liquid?! That seems like a lot. Do they consider IRA's liquid, considering I CAN access them (just with paying a penalty tax-wise)?
