Cultural Immigration to Canada for Self-Employed People
Canada has opportunities for individuals in artistic fields of work to qualify for Self-Employed Permanent Residence based on their cultural activities. Self-employed people can permanently move to Canada based on their experience or contributions as "world class" workers including:
- anyone who is a "behind the scenes" worker in cultural industries
World Class Athletes
Self-employed cultural immigration is also available for world class athletes including coaches, trainers and athletes.
Cultural immigration applicants must have proven records of earning an income and supporting themselves and their families through their work.
Evelyn Ackah, Founder and Managing Lawyer at Ackah Business Immigration Law, is driven to give back to the community and to remain actively involved in her profession. She defines success by her personal, professional and community contributions.
