Do your research online instead. You don't need to have a lengthy BP, but you need to know your intended occupation (how it's gonna work) and settlement plan. :)
We actually wrote a 8 page BP, and people who have experience in this immigration class told us it was too long. He said there's no need to write a real, full BP since the immigration officers probably wouldn't have patience to read such a long plan, so don't elaborate it too much. Is that true? Actually it's very hard for my husband to write his plan because under his profession, it's very hard to start up a business by his own. Basically it just can't be a small business :(

write only what is needed, nothing more than that - so if 8 pages is the basic, send it with confident! :)

Well, it's kind of vague on what is needed to me. Cuz I do know someone who wrote a very simple BP, which is more like an outline and not giving any supportive details showing how his BP would actually work. Meanwhile, there are also someone we know, wrote a 40 page BP, which is really something you would show to your potential investors. Plus, their files were both prepared by their lawyers. Moreover, I think I found someone in this forum didn't provide a BP at all! That really confuse me o_O

Exactly, so it really depends on your husband's job nature and intended occupation :)

Talkig about the job nature, we have another problem that's not so sure. My husband's NOC is "5131 Producers, directors, choreographers and related occupations". What he really does so far are more than one occupations under this code. He sometimes does a producer's job, while in some other projects he was a director. It's common in their field thay people may work in multi-occupations. But some advisors say it's always better to focus on one occupation. Is this true? Or it's just as what you said above, solely depands on the nature of his job?

You'll have to decide one primary NOC for the form, but I think you could mention the other NOCs in the narrative statement (Schedule 6A) if you wish. I am not sure if that helps, but at least they're reflected somewhere in the application...

Do you think it would be fine that we put more than one occupations (or business directions) in our BP? Cuz in real life my husband actually does all of them for living. It should be reasonable to do the same to survive in Canada right?
