I applied in the self-employed stream in late summer 2018, receiving AOR early September 2018. That is it. Zero progress since then. Nobody can explain to me why this is the case. Eventually I managed to get in touch with my partner’s MP’s office in Canada (I have been living in Canada for 3+ years and have also applied for common law). They were able to tel me last month that the application is STILL UNOPENED ALL THESE YEARS LATER! I used an immigration lawyer and have spoken to them and other Immigration Lawyers who say they have had clients who applied in the same way as me long after I did and received answers.
cannot work, cannot get a doctor’s appointment. Seems nobody can explain or help.

Hey everyone, musician here, did all by myself. My application was recieved on July 2020. Got a temporary UCI and a confirmation that they received it. Currently self-employed in canada already because I came on a student Visa. I would like to continue to work here while waiting for my results, what kind of work permit could I apply? I heard about the International Mobility program for self employed people. Any help?

Similar situation to you. I work in film, self-employed and applied through this stream.
really hard to get work permits on this stream. No bridging visa and work permit available as far as I know... I tried.
For me it was nearly impossible to qualify for the International Mobility Program. I work contract to contract whichcould be one day of work or a year. The system seems unprepared to facilitate contractors, more geared towards business owners. The examples of evidence they are; intending on renting office space, showing they will hire Canadian staff, register their business in Canada etc etc. I spoke to immigration lawyers both in Canada and in myoriginal country and the consensus was it wasn’t doable. I received AOR (confirmation) in September 2018. My application still remains unopened as of today. Not even started. The average processing time has gone to 29 months. According to local MP in Toronto, I’m still at the beginning of that very long time frame. Not to scare you, I may just be extremely unlucky.
