Dear Jaun
Can you explain please (After the officer had sent you an e-mail saying that he is not convinced that you are a self employed person). You were about to hire a consultant or lawyer in order to help you address it. What happened next? Did you reply to the officer?and then he asked for a business plan or you are still preparing you reply? Did you make an interview?
Yes, I have consulted few lawyers in Canada and UAE but after having long discussion with them I decided to do everything on my own because all they wanted to do is just file my case still I have to provide all evidence and hire some other professional for business plan one lawyer quoted me 3500 dollars for just filing the case and 1500 for a business plan and most of the consultant in UAE are a fraud.

first, I thought to hire some professionals for the business plan but unfortunately, I couldn't find any good person and decided to do it my own one other reason for doing myself is coz of the pandemic I lost a lot of money in my investments and couldn't afford any lawyer or consultant.

so I am almost done with everything and my deadline is 23 November, let c what happened.

I have gathered these documents as evidence. Contracts from clients. reference letters, invoices, bills, personal expenses details, rent details etc and business plan of course.

I hope he be satisfied this time.

Thanks guys.

I have two questions as well.

As My NOC is Creative Designer but i do Digitial marketing as well.

In BP my focus should be on creative designing services or it can be a combination of other services as well.?

like I did market research and found out that in Canadian ppl do like price comparison online and love to shape online so I focus a bit more on Ecommerce store design and Social media page design and Management because these services have more scope than Graphic designing alone because when i will start a media design company that services would be part of it.

The second question is that a few days back I could see additional documents UPLOAD option in my GCkey account but now it got disappeared, is it some system problem or they have extended my Date submission time as i have requested them to do so because of the pandemic I am unable to move between UAE emirates.

Thank you all.

Hi Jaun,

Just seen your post and its good to know that you are applying all by yourself. I also wanna apply in Self-employed stream. can u help arranging the docs regarding the work? I know the checklist but is it mandatory to attach a business plan, if yes, where can I get a sample of it? your reply is highly appreciated.

Regards

Hi
I plan to have a club in Canada and coach there but I am not sure what to write in the general form.
Is it okay to write "club manager and coach"as my intended occupation
Or it is better that I just write "coach"

thank you

Hi, while I was searching for how to write a business plan. I got in contact with a company who implements BP. One of her samples was a BP for a Coach, and in the details they mentioned that he is going to open a club or a maybe a gym as I remember.
I will serach for it and try to send you the link.

Tnx a lot
Go to their website and click on samples, there is samples especially for self employed and the Coach is one of them. It is detailed and I think that you can benefit from it. Moreover, there is samples to each province.

It is not mandatory, some applicants receive their Copr even without submitting a BP.
The point is that the officer must clearly know your future plans and what researches you have conducted inorder to become a self employed in canada.
