Income Qualification


New Member
I am self employed and wanted to know if I can use my gross business income to qualify or do I have to use the profits from my business( net income ) to meet the criteria. I've checked the official website but they don't provide clear direction. Hope I can get some clarification. Thanks.

I suspect it's net, but you should ask an immigration consultant or lawyer about this. (Or you can try calling IRCC at 1-888-242-2100 but I don't know if they'll be able to answer your question if you get through.)

How about you meet the income requirement for 2020, 2019 but for 2018 - a little less ($300.00 only). Will it be approved? It is less because of being myself on a parental leave.

Please advise if anyone have similar situation.
