Quebec Self-Employed Class
Under the Canada-Quebec Accord on Immigration, Quebec establishes its own unique
immigration requirements and selects immigrants who will adapt well to living in
Quebec. The Quebec Self-Employed visa is similar to the Federal Self-Employed visa
but allows for professionals seeking self-employment in Quebec. The program is geared
towards applicants who will generate their own employment by pursuing an occupation
in which they already have experience. The program is specifically designed to encourage
newcomers to invest in Quebec's local economy.
Applicants must be experienced business persons, and have the required amount of
legally acquired funds and have proficiency in Canada's official languages. Once
granted, applicants will obtain permanent residence and be able to work and live
in Canada with their families.
