Hi, long term lurker, first time poster. I've been trying to find the best way to immigrate to Canada since 2004! Over the years I've missed deadlines on programs as the goalposts moved with federal regulation changes but the Self Employed route seems pretty stable. Has anyone heard any rumoured changes to this route coming up? As a self employed sound engineer and AV tech in the UK it's looking the most promising route for me after all this time (I am over 40 and getting a job offer from overseas is harder than finding Unicorn poop so things like EE and PNP are not viable with the score I get). So to the question: does anyone have any idea why processing times are soooooooooo long on average for this route? Are there literally billions of self employed people trying to get in? Kind regards, Jack.
