Hi all, I hope this message finds you well in your respective journies into Canada!

Quick question to all those before me:

My partner (a freelance editor) and I (writer/author) are wondering if it is required to have a university degree. I'm sure they benefit the applications, but are they mandatory?

Cheers, and here's to wishing you all a happy, healthy, and exciting New Year!
No, you're eligible as long as you've passed the required 35 marks out of 100 (and have relevant self employed experience for more than 2 years + have intention and ability to be self employed in Canada).

Wow, no sooner was I about to close the tab, I got this notification! Thank you for the swift reply - that's reassuring to know.

It's all starting to become a little more real now.

P.S. Is there a specific minimum income requirement?

Good luck! We all know this feeling. :)

No there's no black-and-white income/ assets requirement but it should make sense, say, the principal applicant should be able to settle and support him/herself and his/her family in Canada for a year.

Check documents u have submitted b4. It's almost 2 years now from your explanation. Just get them updated by providing fresh air latest information about them. That's my understanding of what they want.

Hii guys, I have couple of queries... Can we claim points for correspondence bachelor's degree or not? Can we attach property under the name of parents in our total net worth, and if yes, do we need any affidavit from parents for this?
Regarding the correspondence bachelor's degree--a degree is a degree whether it was done in a physical school or via distance learning. Include your diploma in your application and input your degree details in the forms, so that you will be able to claim points.

Between a few days to a bit more than a month BEFORE THE PANDEMIC.
Now we haven't heard any new AORs since March/April.
Oh my. Really, no good news regarding AORs since March? :(

Just noticed that the 'timeline' progress bar has disappeared from my application profile. Has it happened to anyone else?
