» Points Test
Once you have met the requirements for the Self Employed Category you must undergo the Business Points Test. The pass mark for all three classes of business immigrants is 35.
For each selection factor, a specific number of selection points are allotted. The following tables will help you estimate how many points you would earn for each factor.
If you have a score lower than a total of 35 points, your application may be refused.
Business experience must have been obtained within the period beginning 5 years before the date of application.
Points are awarded for your age at the time your application is received.
If you wish to be assessed for adaptability points, it is necessary that your province of destination provide you with documentation indicating that it is satisfied that you have met one or both of the above elements.
If you wish to earn points for adaptability, you should first contact the provincial or territorial government contact for the province/territory to which you are destined.
