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?
if you're not a native speaker you will eventually need to prove your language ability in one of Canada's 2 official languages - English of French.

Native speaker means? my mother tongue in URDU and English is a basic/moderate level

so what is best for me? do I need to attempt IELTS? and if I got 4-5 bands then? its not good to impress CIO with these results

IMO you'll need to prove it sooner (now with IELTS) or later (during interview) so consider to start working on it seriously...

then they will further communicate over email and provide UCI I'd for linkingredients application in gc key account?
After CIO has received your physical application package, if it is completed and signed, they will e-mail you your UCI.
--> This step is commonly referred as 'AOR' here, which stands for 'Acknowledgement of Receipt'.

Then you can link it to your GC key account for any further updates.

Recently due to the pandemic, the AOR takes longer time.

Hi everyone,
the company who makes our Business plan just suggest that we should hire employees in Canada to show our contribution to the country. But it is a self-employed program, not an entrepreneur one. Am I right that this is not necessary? Do you know about this? Thank you in advance
