Pls what were you asked in the phone interview?
Me? I did not talk someone on the phone. Should I ?
I think the most important thing here is to show that you are truly self employed and have genuine intention to be same in canada. Having international spread is an advantage if you can prove it. But not a must requirement.
So I should try to find to prove my 15 years of freelance musician experiences. As far as I understand I do not need to apply from any noc profession group in self employed immigration. if I apply to express entry, I have to choose only one NOC. For example as a musician or as a composer / arranger.
If I continue to work as a composer or arranger in global works and at the same time if I can find a way to prove my other experiences.. it will be the best

My interview was only around how I plan to sustain myself and my family (and hence pay our taxes!) in Canada. I had my answers prepared, based on the initial research I had done, so I answered that question fairly confidently. The very next question was - how soon can you come to Canada? So there you are.

Great. The answer here will basically centers on your POF or sellable assets bk home thst you can initially fall bk on till you find your footing in canada. Pls what was your answer? That will be helpful bc this particular questions kept on resurfacing. Some guys that had their phone interview were asked same exact 2 questions.
Congratulations pls don't leave us. Appreciate your assistance. Have a safe trip.

Good morning,
I hope everybody is doing well.

I assume that the Canadianviz site is a scam because I made the payment along with the application for the GCMS note on 11 March 2022, and I did not receive theat document, yet.

Not necessarily because notes are taking up to 90 days right now.
