Self-employed person: After you apply

No new applications under the farm management stream

As of March 10, 2018, we’re no longer accepting new applications under the farm management stream of the Self-Employed Persons Program. We’ll continue to process applications received before March 10, 2018.

How we assess your application

After you apply, we’ll verify that you have:

  • filled out your application forms correctly and signed them
  • paid your processing fee and biometrics fee and
  • included all required documents

If you forget something, your application won’t be processed and will be sent back to you.

We’ll contact you when we receive your complete application.

Get your fingerprints and photo taken

Your fingerprints and photo (biometrics)

Book your biometrics collection appointment as soon as you can to avoid processing delays. Find out how to give biometrics.

If you’re between 14 and 79 years old, you need to give your fingerprints and photo (biometrics) for every application for permanent residence you submit to us. Even if you gave your biometrics in the past and they’re still valid.

  • You must pay the biometrics fee when you submit your application. Otherwise you may experience delays.
  • Get this done as soon as you get the letter from us that tells you to give biometrics.
  • You have 30 days to do this from the date on the letter.

Find out who needs to give, how to give, and where to give your biometrics.
