The minimum pass mark is currently 35 points for business immigration categories (self employed, investors and entrepreneurs). The pass mark may change, so make sure you visit this site regularly if you are considering immigrating to Canada.

If your score is lower than the pass mark in the corresponding category, you are not likely to qualify to immigrate to Canada. We recommend that you do not apply at this time. However, you can still apply if you believe there are other factors that would show that you are able to establish yourself in Canada and support your dependants. Send a detailed letter with your application explaining why you think you are able to become economically established in Canada. Include any documents that support your claim.

If you meet the minimum point required to immigrate to Canada, you can complete the Canadian immigration evaluation form and provide more details about your self. An immigration consultant will evaluate your case and get back to you. Once you have immigrated to Canada (under any of the above categories) you and your dependants will be eligible to work, live and study in Canada. You may also apply to Canadian citizenship within 3 years.
