Hi everyone,
did anyone make the IELTS exam and put it into the application? I know the program says that it is not required but our immigration agent wants to make it with us. Do you have experience about this? Did you make it? And with which result? our agent told us it is needs to be at least 6 band.
Thank you in advance

Hi, I am about to take IELTS on the last week of September. I believe it is mandatory, as it says here:

https://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=642&top=6

If you applied as a self-employed person on or after March 3, 2011, you must include the results of an English or French language test with your application. This will ensure your language skills are considered when we assess your application.

It must be a third-party language test from an agency approved by IRCC.

This rule applies to all self-employed applicants who want to claim points for their language skills.

Hello,

Sorry for bumping into this thread.
I am an SAP Integration consultant working for a life sciences firm here in India.
I have been given an opportunity to work form anywhere as last year my husband moved to Qatar and I was supposed to join him there.
The firm doesn't have any problem with my movement, just that I need to keep them informed. Ofcourse my husband would be looking for an employment opportunity . We can bring 50000 CAD for a family of 2 Adults & 2 Children
Is it possible for me to apply under Self Employed scheme , i think I won't be searching for any job there?
I have 10 years of experience as a permanent employee.
Please can anyone throw some light here?

Mine was received on 25 March 2020 and no update till today, but I send a message and I received the following message:
1/2 Once we find your application complete, we’ll send you an Acknowledgement of Receipt (AoR). Note: You can only check your application status after we start processing your application. There’s a delay between when you submit your application and when we open it. 2/2 Due to the impacts of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), this delay may be longer. Once we open your application and check that it’s complete, we start processing it.

No. Your background and intention do not quality for immigration through this scheme. Talk to a consultant to find a suitable pathway for your case.

Dear Aizaz,

Can you share table template of your annual income and copy of contracts and also, your Invoices of the big clients from the past 3 years in supporting documents?


Because I am Graphic Designer, in same you and I am going to take a PR through self-employed.


I uploaded all my documents, but after two weeks, CIC sent me emails to correct my defects.


Thank you for your consideration.


Best regards,

Kereng Bandari

Did you upload it online? I think there is in the self-employed program they gave the address to sent courier and mail ?

Is this area in your online application?

There also a Questionnaire linked to this, is that something to be filled?

Asking this because there was no prompt for this area of application.


I made a GC key login but there is only 2 option submit an application and not yet submitted

the submitted application will be linked by UCI and application no. if we sent physically on postal code address

so how you upload documents categories wise, its not appearing in my GC key login,

https://www.settler.ca/english/ielts-self-employed-immigration/

IELTS or other language tests are not part of the minimum criteria at the moment. However, self-employed immigration has a point system as well. You need to receive at least 35 points out of a 100-point system. Language tests could help you get up to 24 points.

it's confusing, its required or not required as basic 35+ points already accomplished so why IELTS?
