UK self employed

Discussion in 'Business Immigration' started by Whitetoo, Mar 21, 2012.

  1. Hello immigration gurus!

    I am new here and hope to learn a lot more about the Canadian immigration processes. I've spent a good 6 months in Canada over the past couple of years for pleasure purposes but now wish to venture into the immigration process as this has always been a lifetime goal. I have spent a lot of time studying the immigration website but I've now tried to take in so much information I feel like I'm going around in circles.

    I own a Ltd company here in the UK which provides digital marketing services. Most of the business is conducted online which makes it very easy to relocate.

    Do I have any chance at all to submit my application under self-employed or am I barking up the wrong tree. Would anyone be kind enough to provide any advice in my situation?
    I would really like to relocate the company to Canada but of course I need to try and do it in the right way (if at all possible).

    I thank you all in advance for any help or advice you can provide.

    1. Probably barking up the wrong tree. Read the definition of self employed. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/business/self-employed/index.asp

    Self-employed persons

    The Self-Employed Persons Program seeks to attract applicants who intend and are able to become self-employed in Canada. Self-employed persons must have either:

    relevant experience that will make a significant contribution to the cultural or athletic life of Canada or
    experience in farm management and the intention and ability to purchase and manage a farm in Canada.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really seldom do I see a forum that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your thoughts is important; the issue is something that not a lot of people are talking intelligently about. I’m really happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
